Christmas Eve Hill

The Christmas Eve Hill ride is so tough that...

 - you get coal even if you are nice
 - even when you ride down it you are going up hill
 - throwing up is not optional
 - when someone does make it to the top, a pig will fly over head and there is a snowball fight in Hell
 - you can measure your speed with negative numbers
 - if your chain didn't snap then it will soon, when you are in the midde of a busy intersection (the Hill's revenge)
 - it takes a year to forget how hard it was and think about trying again
 - Chuck Norris can't make it to the top

Getting Lost

Working in the software business for me has been a great opportunity to travel. Yes, you read that correctly, being a software engineer doesn't always mean you're a desk jockey. Though I do tend to spend most days reducing my posture to a that of a cooked macaroni, I am often traveling to meet with clients, partners and attend industry conferences.

Recently after a long spell of posture deterioration I had the chance to visit a customer near exotic Tullahoma Tennessee. Never heard of it? Well it's about an hour south of Nashville. You might not expect much from such a small town but everywhere I go I try to make a point of exploring the local area by looking up the best Strava segments and going for a run. And this time I wasn't disappointed.

Since daylight savings time ended (why do we still do this?) we've all noticed it getting dark a lot earlier but undeterred I took the chance to go for a run after finishing up work one day, headed to the nearest Strava segmen…
