Joe Paul Smith of Spencer County traveled to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., on Aug. 4 for two reasons — first to celebrate his 63rd birthday and second to run the Pigeon Forge Midnight 8K Road Race. Smith was trying out his new right knee. He had a complete knee replacement on Jan. 6. After five months of recovery and eight weeks of training, Smith finished in 55 minutes. Later in the week, he also completed a 63-mile bike ride. During the bike ride, he traveled through Jefferson, Oldham and Spencer counties.
