Nashville TN

Russ and Grady

Russ and Grady were AF Academy buddies, and have recently become reconnected as they plan be a part of the USAFA Class of ’70 Hood to Coast relay team. The good news is that Grady just set the World record for the M70 4x400m relay! He and his wife, Kathy, now call Nashville home, and they spent the day showing us the sights and taking us to one of the best BBQ joints in town.

Honky Tonk
The streets of Nashville were packed with revelers this sunny Saturday.
We only did a drive-by this time around, but we’ll be back to give this full-size replica of the Parthenon a closer look next time.
The wall
The history of the state is interspersed with quotes and poems along this 1400-foot granite wall at the Bicentennial State Park right by the Capitol.



Nashville Nudes
“The Nashville Nudes” aka “Musica” was a controversial addition in a revitalization project.
A parting gift – Grady autographs a copy of his book, 200 Tips Every Runner Should Know.
