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. My 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!

What are the best restaurants to visit and sites to see in NOLA?
