Half Marathon Race Course Preview

The race company put up a vido of the half marathon course I'll be running on Sunday. Really UGLY start along Tchoupitoulas, UGH. But then we tour the Garden District (I swear, it seems like we circle my mom's house a few times), then down St. Charles to the Quarter, and down Esplanade to City Park.

I wish someone would hand me a cup of coffee outside of Cafe du Monde and then again outside of CC's on Esplanade! Or that I could get a go cup Monsoon from Port O Call and dump it in my waist Camelbak. :)

I AM BACK! One half marathon coming up.

When my health problems got bad, I thought my relationship with this bracelet was over. I buy charms for the races I run. Since I did a 14 miler on Saturday in preparation for an upcoming half marathon, I am calling it! I AM BACK and I am wearing my bracelet!

Charms L to R:
Oil derrick, 10K in Bakersfield, California where there's a ton of oil drilling. I was last. The race director came out looking for me. :)

Pelican: 2 miler in Kenner, La with my sister.

"No More Excuses": Crescent City Classic 10K in New Orleans with my mom and a friend.

Santa: my new Christmas tradition, an Athens 5K.

Mardi Gras mask symbolizing NOLA races.

Turkey: my now annual turkey trot 5K in Athens.

26.2 self explanatory. New Orleans marathon.

Penguin: For John "The Penguin" Bingham, because I am SLOW.

Georgia peach: my first Georgia race, 5K along Lake Rabun.

13.1 New Orleans half marathon.
