Mardi Gras Marathon BarbaraH 6/8/04 11:56:52 PM ET
I wpould encourage all of you to come to New Orleans for the marathon. I live in A suburb of N.O. I have run the half twice and plan to volunteer for MGM in 2005. New Orleans is a wonderful destination city. It is a flat course. We have a great post race party in the Superdome. I ran Chicag in 2002 for my first marathon. I had a wonderful experience but didn't really pla to run any more so I did the MArdi Gras half in 2003. My training partners conned me into doing a 26 mile training run in the fall of 2003 so I had to find a last minute marathon to get a medal for that distance. I ran Baton Rouge. It is a pretty course, but you run the same course twice for the marathon. It is a small marathon and for slow people like me (5:45)they were out of food, etc. Any questions about New Orleans feel free to ask. Annie with a 4:30-5:00 I would feel like a speed demon.
