I came up early to Challenge Knoxville for some reason, possibly because I don’t have a job. The first person I saw was Cameron Dye in the Holiday Inn lobby and I tweeted my appreciation, but I haven’t heard back from him . . . yet.

Next was off to check in.  It was likely the earliest check in of my career for anything.  I’m number 817 if you want to track me in the Olympic.

Here are some beautiful photos from my day.

I thought I was the first one to check in, but this was actually the Tennessee Book Festival set up.
This is Cristina from PowerBar. I tried to talk her into a Crushing Iron sponsorship, but it didn’t go very well.
Beautiful sky above the Challenge Knoxville finish line. Let’s hope it comes back on Sunday.
Remember the World Fair in Knoxville? Me either.
This is exactly where I will be taking a bath after the race.
This girl in the backpack pretty much slammed the door in my face.
This is the haunted ghost tour machine and it’s legit.
Does this even need a caption?
Always a lot of biscuits around this weekend.
This is Challenge Knoxville’s new swag

      The hills on the run were pretty tough after that hilly bike. I ran out of steam towards the end, but still beat my previous (& only) half time by about 25 min. I was thankful for the clouds! Congrats on your 2nd place win! Hehe
