One Week Til NOLA Half

Ok, I’ve been really bad at blogging recently – sorry. But, I have been busy getting ready for the New Orleans Half Marathon with Team Challenge. It’s just a week away!


I’m so excited to explore the city (especially the food). I expect to eat a lot of beignets and seafood while I’m there. I have a handful of other things I’d like to do, but I’m not setting a specific itinerary so I can see where things take me. I’ll do and see as much as I can, but I’m sure I won’t get to everything.

On the training front, things have been really good. It felt like training started a little slow as I was getting back into things after the marathon, but I settled into a groove after a few weeks and started to really enjoy the long runs again.

One of my 2016 running goals is a half marathon PR. I’m gonna go for it in NOLA. I’ve been training in the MN cold, so it will be a little different running in slightly warmer temps and I’ve heard it’s been humid down there.┬áMy training has been on track to PR, so as long as weather and other conditions are good, I should be able to do it.

Stay tuned for trip and race recaps!
