Sewall's Falls Recreation Park

Despite all the work we have to do, Dan and I went for a long walk today around the neighborhood today. Most of our walk was on the trails through the Sewall Falls Recreational Park along the Merrimack River. We walked more than four miles, and I accumulated 7 Activity Points. It was nice to get out in the fresh air, enjoy the sunshine, hear the rush of the Merrimack, and get the heart pumping. The walk also gave Dan and me the opportunity to talk about all of our upcoming adventures, especially moving next month. Somehow, we need to accumulate stuff to fill this new house-- like a dining room set, guest bedroom furniture, lamps, patio furniture, etc. I plan on making a pilgrimage to Ikea once I start working (I need a job first) and shopping the newspapers/Craig's list in hopes of finding nice, affordable furniture. Until I find a job, we'll have to get used to the echo of an empty house and make excuses not to have anyone over. Lol.

We use a free website called Map My Run to calculate walking, jogging, and biking routes throughout our neighborhood. I find that it is easier to calculate distance than sites like Mapquest and Google Maps. Plus, it allows you to plan routes that may or may not follow streets, which I find gives me more accurate calculations. There are tons of features on the website that I have not begun to explore. I know you can find routes in your area designed by others and even find out the elevation along your route (helpful in a hilly area like NH). Try it out. Let me know what you find.

I use map my run too I love it. Good job on the 4 mile. today was my rest day then 5 miles tomorrow. Also try wholesale stores for cheaper furniture or you can always do the rent to own thing if you have something like that where you live. Good luck though i hope it works out for you.
