Even though the beds at the Doubletree were super comfy, I always have trouble sleeping the night before a race and this was no exception. The good thing was that we were super close to Biltmore and we were planning to ride the shuttle from the hotel, so we could sleep slightly later than we otherwise would have. I was disappointed by the Doubletree’s decision to no longer include free breakfast in the rooms, but at least they did have some food available for purchase.
Once we got down to the river we had a nice flat path to run on for a while. I was looking forward to grabbing this shot of Kim by the lagoon with the house in the background, but the light didn’t exactly cooperate.
… and then stopped at the Hop (I know, no one who reads this is surprised) for an ice cream lunch before heading back to Greenville.
