Donna, Susanne, and I headed to New Orleans on the afternoon of Good Friday. Of course an essential need of any road trip is a stop at Starbucks!! ;-)
Our road trip was thankfully uneventful thanks to my new car and we arrived in New Orleans at just the right time! We headed straight to the expo!
Luckily we found Paige in the parking garage!
Bib pickup was super easy!
And then we had some fun at the expo!
They had a wall where you could sign your name this year! It was pretty full but I found a spot!
We did a little bit more shopping around and then it was time to head to the Pasta Dinner. You can purchase tickets to the buffet style pasta dinner that is located in the hotel where the expo is. As a blogger I was given complimentary tickets for me and my friends. Super nice!
The food was amazing! They had tons of it! I was happy because I was starving!!!
I had already told myself that it would be ok to break my tradition of pizza before a race. But y'all!!! I was highly surprised to see PIZZA on the buffet! To say I was happy is an understatement lol!
And then they had tons of desserts to choose from as well!
And we also needed a picture with the chef and our server as well! You know us bloggers...we gotta get a pic of everything lol!
After dinner it was time to head to check in to our hotel. We had fun playing some Phase 10 before it was time to go to sleep.
And of course I posted my flat Road Runner Girl too! ;-)
Stay tuned for my recap of the race!
QOTD: Do you ever eat the pasta dinners a lot of races offer? Or do you have your own tradition?
