Dear Runner Lovers,
Last weekend, for my birthday, I flew all the way down to New Orleans to run the Rock n Roll Marathon! This is a Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital fundraising marathon. ❤️ I had the best time of my life and I absolutely love New Orleans! 😍
I hopped off my flight and went straight to the race expo in the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. I registered for the 26.2, and then went on a little shopping spree with the race vendors ( I am so bad).🤪 My new favorite things are my Rock n Roll New Orleans half-zips with thumb holes, I’ll never take them off. 😁
The 26.2 started at 7:30 am, in beautiful Lafayette Square. 🏃♀️
The New Orleans race course is so super cool! We were treated to live bands running through the Garden District, through French Quarter, up around the colleges with the view of Lake Pontchartrain, and we ended the race in City Park with all of the gorgeous trees! At mile thirteen, I was giggling when volunteers were offering me jello shots and gin or vodka martinis, they seriously know how to party down there in New Orleans! This race is one to enjoy, embrace the atmosphere, and have an amazing time. Everyone is so friendly, I just adored running this race!
The race medal is all glitter with a litter crawfish wearing a party hat! Love love love. I wore my marathon medal in the French Quarter all night, and received so many compliments. It is the Tricentennial, so everyone should go down to New Orleans for Mardis Gras to get some beads and drink hurricanes!! What happens in New Orleans stays in New Orleans! 🎊🏃♀️🦞🍹😍
That Pretty Runner
