What an absolutely FUN race this was. This was my very first time in New Orleans and honestly it was a great experience. The running crowds there are simply amazing. And the city. OMG the city of New Orleans is absolutely amazing! Great food, great atmosphere. The race itself was fun. The weather I remember was pretty darn close to perfect. Upper 50’s I believe. It was raining every so lightly at the beginning but nothing super bad. This was the first race I had since the near failure in Mississippi two weeks earlier so I really wanted to have a much better performance. I pretty much pushed it as hard as I could go and I enjoyed every minute of it.
