This weekend was the big RACE WEEKEND for Brandi and me! After training and planning for months and months, we were super excited to tackle the International triathlon distance (1 mile swim, 24 mile bike, and a 10K/6.2 mile run). The race was in beautiful Asheville, which is about 2.5 hours west of Charlotte. I have been to Asheville numerous times, but I think this trip really showed me how much Asheville has to offer.
After we zipped, we headed to lunch at Green Sage Café. Asheville is nicknamed “Foodtopia” for good reason – the city is super famous for all it’s yummy local, organic, and/or sustainable food. There’s also a huge vegetarian/vegan scene.
My one and only issue with dining in Asheville is that the restaurant scene is SO awesome that it’s sometimes hard to get a table. Not only was the Green Sage Café’s food really, really delicious (check out that yummy Buddha Bowl!), but it was an order-at-the-counter place and the food was out super fast. We were really hungry so this was awesome! Oh, and the coffee was banging, which was much appreciated after such an early start.
