Harvard (but not the University)

What can I say, I'm a glutton for punishment. My sister and I ran a 10-mile road race this past weekend in Harvard, MA. (We actually drove right by the road that leads to the Nashoba Valley Winery--a NE Mamas meetup site a few weeks ago.)

The race started and ended at the Fruitlands Museum. The autumn views were breathtaking and I certainly would have enjoyed them much more had I not been too nervous to run, and then afterwards, too exhausted to notice!

"One of the first outdoor museums in America, at Fruitlands visitors discover the stories, experiments and ideals of the Alcotts, Shakers, utopians, artists and Native peoples. Fruitlands four galleries, singular collections, over 200 pastoral acres, trails and vistas stir the imagination."

Fruitlands offers 3.2 miles of walking trails, along with a restaurant and galleries. It also hosts school groups for field trips. So check out all they have to offer!

And yeah, the race. I described it in detail on my blog over here, but let me just reiterate:

Hey wait. I thought this was the Apple Harvest Ramble. Sure looks like Sausage Fest to me.
