Even though it was a course full of rolling hills, it was by far one of the coolest and most fun races I have run. The expo was ok, not as great as Miami which is also put on by U.S Road Sports, but they had a NormaTec booth and I was quite ecstatic about that.
New Orleans, home of mardi gras, the saints, and not so healthy food. But also known for its flat and bumpy roads. Mom and I went on down to NOLA for the Rock n Roll race which we registered for last year and this was the first race we have done since the fire. It was an okay race, nice and flat, warm and took us throughout the city. However the road conditions sucked, there was not a lot of fans cheering us on, and only a few bands that I can recall. However, it was cool seeing Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan run this race.
