Had a half marathon race cancelled this fall and hoping to still run it on my own- any suggestions for good spots / trails? Looking for somewhere scenic, relatively flat, long, but not too crowded (I.e., down by the Charles is out with too many people). Willing to drive a few hours and make a day trip out of it or go somewhere local- any ideas come to mind? Thanks in advance!

Battle Road (Minute Man National Park) in Concord is great- has trails with good footing, pretty flat and usually not that crowded!

Second the Battle Road- 10 miles if you do the full length out and back.

There's some nice rail trails up in Wenham/Topsfield area on the north shore, as well as Amherst/North Adams in W. Mass. Not very crowded and pretty flat. East Bay path between Providence and Bristol is nice too (ocean views).

Yeah, that's a fun one. You can park off of Monument Ave by the Temple and run south along the water, over the seawall and around Nahant and back. I've done that one many times.

Any of you struggle with Keloid scars? I've been to the derm multiple times and received Corticosteroid shots that flatten them out but the scars keep coming back. For context, I'm a POC and the scars are less than a couple of cms, but itch a lot when I workout and have caused skin discoloration around them. Also, can I apply vitamin C around the scars to treat the discoloration?

Curious to see if there are any natural ways to minimize their impacts.

For context, coming up to the end of my second year of working, 24, I know I’m in a good spot but feel like I’m wasting opportunity sitting on cash. I probably spend around $3.5k/month towards living, no outstanding debt. Only financial goal is to buy a place in a year and a half when my lease expires, I’d estimate needing $15-20k for for DP/CC.

How do you come up with your labs to make sure they are aligned with the unit.? I feel like I am doing well on EOC scores but I feel like my class is a drag because we just drill concepts and the labs are not making the connections I’d like between the lesson and the activity. It becomes them just following my instruction and not much scientific processing or troubleshooting to come up with the conclusion. I want to make scientist not just students that pass the EOC.
