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.

Lake Logan bike I was glad that I previewed the course on Friday. The first and last two miles have the most grade to them but the entire section from the lake to the stoplight at 276 is rough and the flat sections here are really false flats. I waited until crossing 276 just after mile 6 to take on much water. I also had a Honey Stinger Waffle about there. This segment went well for me. I a lot of people on the bike and the only two people who passed me, well, I passed them back ;-) In terms of remembering the course for next time, hilly until the first stop light at 276. Ride hard until the second stop light. There are several turns through Canton and a road with two speed bumps. The road is less smooth as we head back south on 215. Ride hard until the school. Shortly after the school there are a few turns and we are on 276 for a block or so. Then the road is more narrow, more rough and more uphill. When you see the Sunburst Trout sign, you are at the last and steepest uphill section. Then there is a short downhill where you can catch your breathe a bit before transition.

Lake Logan run I like this run course a lot! It goes from the Lake Logan property, part of a Clean Water Management Trust Fund conservation easement, and into the Shining Rock Wilderness in the Pisgah National Forest. On the way out, I heard gunshots! I could not think of anything that was in season but still, gunshots on the run course is a bit disconcerting. Then I passed a shooting range and realized it was fine. The turnaround on the run is by the Sunburst campground and picnic area in Pisgah (named for the sunburst trout in the area). I want to hire the volunteer that was there, the one that we were supposed to run around. She was jumping up and down for every single runner and yelling, "Aren't you happy?! It's all downhill from here!" And I was happy. And it was downhill. Nice negative split! What would you do differently?: Pick up the pace more in the last two miles?




Lake Logan done. It went well. I'll post details when the splits are available.

early morning!
