Wordless Wednesday

Some shots of Good ol' Knoxville, TN. Very cool place. Well hot actually, but you know what I mean.


About 1000ft. above sea level.
Ar arch near Market Square.
Women's rights in Tennessee?!?! WTF?
Gay Street. Which I called 'Fag' (it's okay to make fun of gays now since Obama says they're equal)
Quiet ol' place.
They get something like 140,000 fans for football games. Fucking insane. Wouldn't get that many people for Christ Round 2 (when is that btw...)
The front of Neyland Stadium. Right near the parking garage of Transition.
Great shot from the bridge. We swam right by that in the James River.
Opposite side of James River.

World's Fair Park. Near the finish! This is facing down towards the stadium/waterfront. Behind is finish line (uphill).
Fresh lime juice?! Um..do you really have to ask???
Pre-race fiesta. Mexican food in honor of Cinco de Mayo (which is Mexican for FUCK YA AMIGO!)
Moments before Bodemeister got his ass whupped. And plate contained food.
Mariachi(s) can be white??? Only in TN.
 Vol Fever!!! B/C I'm me, I went on to ask the lady at the front what color the Volunteers were. And where I could find a shirt (if any place in the city).
 Matty Reed. Dude is a GIANT. Gotta be at least 6'5". Walked by him a few times and he was sizing me up for sure. I sensed fear in his eyes. He didn't win this year.
 Men get posters for their transition racks. Dope shit. Asked the lady where mine was....she said, oh honey, you're not a professional. Nearly stole Yoder's poster on my way out.
 Women get 'em too! Womens lib is alive and kickin' in TN.
 Greg Bennett consoling the first loser Cameron Dye (creepiest looking dude ever). Reminds me of IT clown.
 Top 2 women...Kelly Williamson and Lauren Goss. Goss = yummy.
 Accosting Ryan...he's like please get the fuck off me, dude.
 Shots of Caroline, Reid and Jay in exiting the swim.
 You can see the tiny boat she lies in.
 Caroline!!
 Jay, Reid and Caroline finishing.
 Awesome stuff.
 Great pic. Inspiring. That'd be Reid who swam at UNC. Helluva family.

Great pics of your great race and a wonderful town. It looked like such fun, though I know it was a lot of hard work and preparation. Good thing this did not take place in the heat of summer. It does get so humid there at times. Loved the pics of Caroline!

So cool to be part of a race so inclusive of disabilities- particularly considering the rigors of a 3 sport event- I mean it's not like a 5k jog now is it?

Loved the pics. It looks like Knoxville is a place that I would really love to visit someday. Did you try any of the local food? Southern cooking is very comforting and delicious.

Nice to see that you will be doing a run for fun tomorrow. It must feel a bit calming to have a less competitive weekend. Hope you enjoy yourself.

Caroline is certainly an inspiration to anyone attempting to enter a sporting event. Such courage! Thanks for sharing her story.
