|I think I may have forgotten something.|
|Hmmm....any other triathletes around here?|
Then to Madison, a beautiful city, surrounded by two gorgeous lakes and the Monona Terrace Convention Center, designed by FLW himself, which is pretty cool. I knew well enough to go ahead and park in the convention center, and proceed to the check-in area. A line to baffle the most endurable souls, but alas, this is Ironman and Ironman does as Ironman sees fit.
|swim course and bike path, helix shaped parking structure in distance.|
|Any Ironmen around here?|
|Great stuff. Good local baguette, goat's milk brie, cucumber salad (somebody forgot the salt) and sundried tomato pesto.|
But the best part of my morning came when I was heading back to the car. I encountered a woman wearing the most wonderful granny square skirt I've seen in a long time! I stopped her and praised the high heavens for the work which most likely was vintage. She hadn't made it herself, and her companion commented that this was the first time she had ever heard the reference "granny square".
|This is vintage craft. I'm in AWE!!!!!|
Now, we can tackle Ironman, high crochet has been discovered, we have patronized a great co-op, and all the work is done. What else, besides pushing aside the exhaustion I'm feeling, sitting here in a quiet motel room right off of State Street, wondering how I can endure Sunday?
