Starting out was hard. Not so much the running, but more with logistics. Laura and I took a long time to get five miles done during the first few days, and they ended up stretching out to nearly eight with some much backtracking and overlap. Montclair is full of cul-de-sacs and dead ends, so any time we had to run down one of those, we also had to run back. It’s getting better the more we do it, so I’m excited to press on.
Here is the map from all the ground we covered during week one—about 25 miles, I think. And below are some photos of things I took along the way. It’s really interesting to look around and see new things as you go, or things that might seem out of place. Those are what I love photographing.
