Great back roads were the order of the day. While the lack of shoulders persisted to some degree, the lack of cars made it a good day regardless.
One road I was on was just about perfect. The Tour de Bois would have loved it – it was very quiet, and with a new hotmix surface, it was as smooth as …. (I’ll leave the completion of that simile to Watto from Wagga Wagga).
Otherwise, it was a fairly quiet day. A reporter from the local Lebanon newspaper came out for an interview, which gave me a nice break. After that, I just ran and enjoyed the scenery. Kentucky is quite hilly and very picturesque -perfect for running when you find quiet roads.
