If you know me, you know I'm a big fan of Westfield, MA! I spent a lot of time there when my friends were in college at Westfield State and in 2016 someone gave me the crazy idea to open a bookshop downtown. Since then I've made lots of friends in town and even though I've moved on, I still get out there as much as possible, they've got a lot going on! Every third Tuesday of the month, I do a regular spot on the WSKB morning show WOW It's Tuesday with Bob Plasse. After last month's show, I decided to take a jog on the Greenway while I was in town on such a beautiful morning! I parked at Shaker Farms Country Club, which is super convenient and safe! Then I hit the path and headed toward Southwick. It was mostly shady and not too crowded at 8:00am and I had a fantastic run. I highly recommend checking this section out if you like to walk, jog, run or bike. I did about 4 miles and was very happy for the change of scenery from my regular route. I did get startled by a good sized garter snake on the path, but we agreed we were both cool and both just kept moving. I'm not complaining, I was there for the nature! Do you have a favorite section of the Columbia Greenway? Where should I hop on the path next time? 'Tis the season to get out there!
