The weird thing was that when people asked The Pie and I where we were headed last weekend, we'd say, "Charleston."
To which the interested party would say, "Ooooh, that's nic.."
Well, we like it. Something about a city on a river. People that are slightly more like the ones we grew up around in Ohio than the ones we reside close to now in Charlotte.
Yeth, it's a bit of shame that certain things there have fallen into a sad state of affairs. Litter is pretty bad. The consumption of Mountain Dew is high. It's a diamond in the (very) rough. It seems like a city with some history. Basically, a slightly nicer version of Youngstown, OH with water.
But the place feels very... unnnnhh... "America."
We went straight to the Kanawha State Forest when we got there. The Pie went on a trail run. I went for a ride.
And back to the grind and work and "training" and blogging and "watching what I eat."
