Hello from New Orleans!!! This place is the best for eating and running and I’m having a great time. Let me fill you in on the all the food and my RnR New Orleans Marathon Recap…
Yesterday I carb loaded at a hole in the wall with some Jambalaya. The service and food were just mediocre so I won’t mention the place. But, this was my first Jambalaya experience and I liked it!
This is in the top 5 foods I’ve ever eaten. Possibly #1, but I need to review my list. Boom.
I carb-loaded some more with some beverages and a banana.
Rock N Roll New Orleans Marathon Recap / Review
Now for the race – I ended up running the Rock N Roll New Orleans full marathon. It was a last minute decision I made at the expo this weekend. My friend Dave from the #INGClassof2013 was throwing around going for a PR and I offered to pace him to a 4:20 marathon. He took me up on the offer and it was decided. (You can switch from the half/full/full/half beforehand for RnR races or at the expo for a fee.)
I met reader Ciry this morning and saw a lot of other readers along the course.
Hello Sarah! Jackie, did you get your PR?!
Chandra and I in the VIP area where I was 20 feet from Kara Goucher. Since Chandra was running the half she waited for me after the race and met her! LUCKEEE!!!
(She’s sitting the yellow jacket!) Yes, I’m sorry I’m a creeper.
I wore my bib on the back because of my new Run Eat Repeat tank. It probably wasn’t the best idea because I sweat right through the white fabric and even though I was wearing a really good sports bra (so it wasn’t see-through) I felt uncomfortable.
I think I’m going to get a job as a pacer because it was super fun to help someone hit a running goal. I only had to say 2 bad words to him to keep him going, the rest of the time I was positive and encouraging He might report differently, but who you gonna believe?
Okay – time to explore the city!
Question: What was the best thing you’ve eaten this weekend?
