My old Kentucky home ...

I will spare you of the singing.

So I go on vacation and train ... apparently. 7.5 mile run yesterday in Benton,KY. Hot and humid. Running here is nice because the air is moist. It's just so miserable when the sun is out.

It rained like crazy here yesterday afternoon. Then we went to my mom and dad's for part one of two birthday dinners for me this weekend. After dinner we did a 2.4 mile cool down walk. It was nice. We watched the deer play in the soybean fields.

Rise and shine. 4:00am arrives early. We head to Murray to swim with an old friend and neighbor Andy Graham ... who is quite the runner ... and biker ... and swimmer himself. Murray has sprouted a triathlon team. Drills, Drills, Drills. Sarah Simons would be so proud. We swam about 1700m of just drills.

Then we went by gear up cycles in Murray to fetch some "demo" bikes. Carrie is demoing a sweet specialized with Ultregra components. I was supposed to be demoing an HTC Specialized ... but it did not arrive at the shop on time. We are riding about 40 tomorrow with SwimBikeRun of Murray. Then we will likely hit the open water at Kenlake state resort park before my 20 year reunion. Have to work off this food!
