**MY 44 DAY SUMMARY:  153.75 Miles  +22,975 Feet**

There are so many individual trailheads for Wildwood, so it is easy to get them all mixed up.  What I usually do is glance over the map before I go, and then go.  For the first time since the 1000 Hikes began, I set out for my daily routine during my lunch break.  The forecast today suggested sun and low 60's.  It was right on.  My fear was for the evening call for high winds, falling temperatures, heavy rain and snow levels at 2500 feet.  That remains to be seen, but today it felt like 70+ as I ran for an hour meandering along the trail.  The stream was active but crossing it was still simple enough.  My energy level was good, so I was able to lift my knees in stride even on the uphill.  My only pause came when it was time to take an awe inspired photo.  I set out for a 2 mile trek but somehow I managed to go 3.5.  I highlighted my course on the trail map and will post it with the pictures on facebook.  Finally, back on track and on an actual trail.  Today felt good but the cast of no ring looms in my mind!  If your not already friends on my page, please don't hesitate to ask.  Hey, don't forget to click a sponsor before you leave...
