Susan, Keith, Diane, and I walked through the small town of Black Mountain. Keith and I checked out the new Black Mountain Running Company store while our wives were in the kitchen place next door. The running store had just opened a week ago and the two guys inside were still setting things up. They didn't have any shoes that would fit my wide hobbit feet. I've decided that I will not be wearing my New Balance 758's during the marathon run at Ironman Florida. They're just not wide enough in the toe box. They're 4E's.

We missed the really pretty fall leaves by about a week. The storms during the prior week had knocked down much of the fall follage.
Thanks for reading.
