Jamie and I had spent the previous week in Indianapolis visiting my parents, and decided to make this our first kid-free mini-vacation. I realize that only total tri-nerds would spend that time at training weekend, but we decided to make it fun. We got a room at The Brown Hotel downtown, which is right near some great eateries. If you are going to burn 4,000 calories over the course of the weekend, you might as well indulge. We had lunch at the Bluegrass Brewing Company (the best part: Bourbon Bread Pudding for dessert), then explored the city a bit. They were having an... interesting... convention down by the riverfront with thousands of people in costume (sidenote -- it was 102 degrees. No way I would stay in some of these costumes in that heat.) I resisted the urge to get photos of every conference participant I saw, but did get some pics of us with a hearse parked in front of the Galt hotel.
