Another October trip to Maine to visit the family and, of course, some time in the beautiful Maine woods. Unlike the last 2 years, where we have headed up to the family camp along the Appalachian Trail, this trip was spent in and around my hometown of Dixmont. Flying into Portland meant the traditional run from my sister's house around Back Bay and along the beach to the Old Port. Kristel and I also had a nice run in Camden Hills State Park just down the road from Dixmont. The highlight, though, was prouncing around my parents backyard and placing third in the first Erskine Woods Cross Country race. My 10-year-old niece Logan, the budding star of the champion Ellsworth Cross Country team, not surprisingly took top honors. Good times!
