. . . we didn’t make it to the 50 Miler. We were late getting out of bed and how do you find runners in the forest?
The good news is . . . this town ROCKS! I’ve never been to Chattanooga and I am seriously thinking about moving here. Those of you lucky enough to get into Ironman Chattanooga will be swimming under this bridge with a sweet-ass current as your guide. I think, however, you will also be running over that bridge a couple times later in the day. But the scenery is spectacular.
It took me about 5 minutes to realize the city planners just nailed this place. Instead of building a wall of crappy chain restaurants, they have elegantly sprinkled them into the existing landscape.
So, Jim and I are hanging out in a coffee shop and I am eyeing a new condo development out the window. The layout and architecture are definitely inviting, but Chatt is also a training Mecca. Gaze out this window with me and imagine the possibilities lurking in the mountains peaking up in the background of this picture. So, this is just the beginning of my love affair. There will be plenty more evidence as this weekend, and 2014 unfold.
