I think I'm done with #SwimBikeRun.  Fun factor is at zero, motivation is gone, I don't like competing, and I'm just tired as hell.  #BurnedOut

The tile roofs of Siena, Italy are a highlight to the stonework and Etruscan architecture that is preserved in this ancient city.

The grand railway station at Cologne Central has a uniquely designed support structure consisting of curved iron struts and crisscrossing beams to hold up the arched skylight roof that covers the platforms.

The historical architecture of Cologne, Germany offers many interesting surprises, such as this copper roof on one of the large buildings near the main palace.

Diamond patterns fall onto on the interior walls from within the atrium to one of the entrances of the central palace in Cologne. The once open air courtyard has been retrofitted with a glass skylight to preserve the aging interior.

Time trial this morning: 1k swim came in at 15:19, which is a PR. I was hoping I'd be a bit faster, since I did a 15:50 pace for my 52:17 / 3.3 km Capital Classic Ocean Swim. But, considering my longest race distance was 100m ages ago when I was a kid and spent half my life in the pool ... that's not too bad.   #SwimBikeRun
