Saturday: Unfortunately, due to plane delays, my arrival didn't occur until about 10:30 at night on Friday (Note: I won't fly with Delta again if I can help it). Saturday morning, I awoke early and headed out to explore the area around Harvard. I brought my phone along to take some pictures, but I've also taken the liberty of "borrowing" a few shots from Google Images (thanks to everyone that is a better photographer than I am). There was some type of problem between my phone's GPS and Strava so after standing around for a few minutes with no ability to locate a signal, I scrapped the application, and just started running (I also tried using it on my second run with no success). My original plan was to run for about 30-45 minutes, but the total time out wound up being closer to 65-80 minutes due to the fact that I eventually became completely lost. It took a bit of time to get my bearings again, but eventually I managed to find a familiar looking area, and found my way back to the hotel. Apart from getting turned around, the run itself was magnificent.

Tuesday: Early on Tuesday, my colleague and I rented bikes using the Hubway, the bike sharing system for the greater Boston area. These were just cruiser bikes so there wasn't really any hard core riding going on. Still it was great to be able to cover more ground in a short amount of time.
|Lots of practice on the St. Charles|
