When I heard about the Asheville Yoga Festival I couldn't pass up the opportunity to participate. Yoga + Asheville ---> what could be more fun?!? I had never been to Asheville and I thought this was a great excuse to take a weekend of training, learn more about Yoga, and visit Asheville. The weekend was a blast! Asheville definitely lived up to its reputation; it was absolutely beautiful and there were several fun breweries and cute shops.
Friday through Sunday was filled with 2-hour yoga sessions. There were several different classes available; it was definitely difficult to choose which ones we wanted to try! In most of the classes, the first hour was spent talking about the practice and then the second hour was the actual yoga class.
I definitely recommend attending! Here is the link if anyone is interested:

One week after the yoga festival, I drove back out to the Asheville area for my second triathlon of the summer at Lake Logan. This race is the most beautiful course I have been on. I stayed in an Airbnb hidden in the mountains; it was absolutely breathtaking!
I was happy to learn I finished third overall and second in my age group!
I definitely recommend this race: the course was gorgeous, the weather was perfect, the swim was wetsuit legal, and the race was very well organized. I hope to return again next year!
