The Race

We went to the finish line for the Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race on Saturday. We were expecting there to be a ton of people downtown but there really weren't. It was such a beautiful day (74 degrees and sunny) that we decided to walk into town. We had a nice breakfast at the coffee shop and then went over to the park to hang out, wait for the finishers and listed to the reggae band.

The music was supposed to start at 12. We finally left around 2:30 or so to walk back home and the band STILL hadn't started! They didn't even show up until after 1:00 (our friend who is the manager at the chamber of commerce here was freaking out). Then it took them forever to set up and then they couldn't find their microphones! So, we never actually got to hear them play. Oh well, it was a beautiful day and a great walk anyway.

We did get to see the winners cross the finish line so that was fun. Here they are getting ready to cross the finish line. There were 3 people in each team.
