This is the lawn of a small barbecue restaurant located several miles outside the city of Maryville, Tennessee. It’s the start and finish line of the last road race I participated in during this summer at Oak Ridge, the Solstice 8K. I’ll write a race report on my running blog soon, but here I’d just like to say: this was a fantastic event. You can see the folks on lawn chairs listening to the band; the food and drink was excellent (overall winners received a 12-pack and a 6-pack of beer); and the race was expertly organized. It was a blast.
I took a bunch of other pictures that are cool too, and I’ll post them as “runners-up”.
