It’s the night before Team Magic’s Music City Triathlon.  Earlier today we were down there to check-in and it was BY FAR the smoothest check-in I have experienced as a triathlete.  Transition is set up in the middle of Lower Broadway in Nashville and were were talking about how cool it be if the race would have been going on at the time with an onslaught of overzealous tourists.

I’m not sure what was going on, but downtown Nashville was packed.  I had lunch with Elyse at ACME Feed & Seed, and that place was rocking!  I am not kidding when I say there were at least 4 bachelorette parties going on inside all with blow-out dancing, drinking games, etc. in full swing at 2:00 in the afternoon.

The bike course is ready and I saw a lot of volunteers out sweeping the roads for the run.

But back to the party, I mean there were people everywhere downtown, and part of it was the Music City Brewers Fest.  Traffic is a mess because I-40 is closed, so non-conventional transportation was thriving.  I’m not kidding when I say I saw 3 bachelorette parties on Pedal Taverns today and they don’t have clips, race wheels, or power meters!

They even called in the rickshaws!


Regarding the race!  Looks like it’s going to be a perfectly HOT day tomorrow.  Sunshine and mid-90’s but hopefully I’ll be long done by the time the highs hit.  If not, I can always try to catch a lift with one of these golf carts.  golfcart

What the hell is going on?  I really think in a genuine way, we’re going back to the Wild West in this town.

Anyway, good thing the roads are closed for the race tomorrow or this could get out of hand.  Good luck to everyone.
