This will be my 4th year doing this race. I've run the half two times and the full once. I had planned on running it this year but hadn't registered for it. So when St. Jude got canceled and they offered this race as a replacement I was so happy I hadn't already registered!
I'm also super excited because I have plans to meet several of my blogger friends at this race! In fact, I am rooming with Abby from Back at Square Zero, Sarah from Mom Running on Empty, and my pace partner Holly from Running and Baking Oh My! I see Holly fairly often since she lives near me. I've been online friends with Abby and Sarah for about a year and a half but we haven't met in real life. I can't wait to meet them and hang out with them all weekend! I just love meeting blends (blogger friends)!
We are planning a tweetup so if you're running NOLA stay tuned for those details soon!
