Kevin was supposed to wake me up last night after we won the Powerball.  No wake up call.  No note.  Then I saw the winning tickets were not even purchased in North Carolina!  I headed to the pool and then work Disappointed.

Library-Park loop

I must have gotten water in my ear this morning because my right ear felt like I was underwater the whole run. You know, the whole "ear popping" thing -- all through the run. Annoying. Otherwise, the run was uneventful ;-)

Rejoining the working world after a few days off.  I had a great time in western North Carolina!  It was a good break :-) 

√ I'll be posting a few more pictures soon.  Sadly, the "official" event photos are not so good.  The good news is that Kevin was there and he took some pictures.  It's just a matter of getting him to download them from his camera.

Post-event recovery ride. My plan was to find the greenway, get on it and ride to Lake Junaluska. The first part of the plan went well but I "lost" the "greenway" after maybe half a mile. Was it supposed to be sidewalk? If so, where were the markings?


Short recovery ride around Waynesville followed by a trip to Brevard and Hendersonville that included a short hike to Hoover Falls in Dupont State Forest with Emma and Kevin as well as a stop at Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest.

Walk with Emma


I walked Emma this morning.  I need to finish gathering my gear for our trip.  We are heading towards Waynesville later this morning. It's about a five hour drive.

When we got to the Asheville area, we decided to head to the event site.  I wanted to refresh my memory of the course and the layout of the area so off to Lake Logan we went.  After checking out the swim and transition areas, we drove the bike course, went to check in and then headed to the hotel.
