So many of our trips have been focused around a race and 2011 was no exception. This time Gilles’ race of choice was Ironman Louisville and so off we went to Kentucky.
Louisville remains the place where I enjoyed myself the most as a spectator. I was able to easily walk everywhere, there were bridges in abundance (I really like bridges) … and bourbon.
It is here I discovered the joys of a fine bourbon.
The city’s whiskey heritage was apparent in many discreet and not so discreet ways. I thought Whiskey Row had a rather nice ring to it as an address.
This city was friendly and welcoming to its visitors for this major race weekend … and in my opinion, they have the loudest and liveliest finish line in the sport, located at Fourth Street Live.
