None Shall Pass – a quick trip to Uwharrie, slept well, drove a bunch of roads and did an open water swim to make sure my triathlon wetsuit wouldn’t split from dryness.

Wicked Weed tap take over at Bites + Pints. I went because they had a couple of sours, a watermelon passion fruit (pictured) and one called White Angel. Beer was good…

But the hamburger was awesome, I had the breakfast burger… it was so good, I plan to get it again Wednesday before tennis!

Last week I saw these women playing badminton, but I had a tennis match before I could walk over.

Sunrise from Flat Top Tower. I had wanted to hike to it for lat night’s sunset but was exhausted from my ride for the 5 mile hike. So I got up before the sun and ran to the tower… I missed the very beginning since I didn’t take in the fact the first 2.5 miles was “uphill” and my running pace was slower. Still a gorgeous sunrise and a great run.

I wanted a long ride and managed to find one. Blowing Rock past Grandfather Mountain and into Linville, then back up the Blue Ridge Parkway over the Linville Viaduct.

I was talking with a friend about how I wanted to get back to 165. I am close – 60 pounds lost in 14 months. The way this week ended, I might be there by Tuesday!

This is what I carry everyday, I wanted to clean the back and check what I could take out. Very little was left out… I posted the picture on Reddit and took some crap, but it’s my adventure mobile and it serves me well over the last 13 years and 326,000 miles.

it is very odd going from newspaper mindset of story telling images from the reader to event coverage for the client
