Holman 25


Susan and I normally run all of Wildwood Thanksgiving weekend because it falls between both of our birthdays, this has been our birthday tradition for the past 4 years. This year there were torrential downpours over Thanksgiving weekend, so we decided to push it out a week. The problem with that plan was, I was spending the week before in Vegas at a work conference. Knowing that I was going to run all of Wildwood the day after I got home from Vegas definitely made me behave in Vegas. But a week in Vegas is still a week in Vegas, no matter how much I tried to behave and I was feeling exhausted when I got home on Friday, and Susan was getting over a stomach bug, so we decided to push all of Wildwood out again. Instead of running ~30 miles we decided to run 25, makes perfect sense, right? 


Being lazy I thought I would reuse one of our previous 25 mile routes and I was surprised to find we only had one, and the majority of it was on Wildwood. So I decided to create a new route and have it wind up and down between Wildwood and Leif Erikson, to give us a little variety. I love it when our routes are broken up into small sections, instead of one long section on Wildwood. I think all the ups and downs on this route might of made it harder than all of Wildwood, but for some reason mentally it was easier.
