Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Changes

Hey guys! Guess what? I will be helping spread the word about Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans marathon and 1/2 marathon that will be coming to Louisiana again January 25, 2015. I am so stoked about this race for a lot of reasons. It is my favorite local race, I have run it three times and have lots of good memories, AND, it will most likely be my FIRST HALF MARATHON AFTER BABY! Such a scary thought that I will have a child when I run this race. I am hoping that by signing up for something it will be a good motivator right out of the gate to get my rear in gear post delivery and back into running shape. I can’t wait to document my progress starting in October!

One of the great things about this race series is that they not only ask for feedback from participants, but they actually make changes and improvements based on the responses. Us runners love when races listen to us! Check out some things that will be different next year for the New Orleans race:

· Enhanced finish line festival – local food and unlimited beer

· More on course entertainment

· More porta potties!

  2. I really enjoyed this race this year – and it’s my current half PR! I’d love to make it down there again next year!

    RnRNOLA was my first 13.1 a couple years ago. I signed up for the 2015 race on National Running Day and am looking forward to a fun race. The entertainment is great and the course is pretty.

  4. Rock ‘n’ Roll is such a fun series! I ran the 5k in Virginia Beach last year, and Rock ‘n’ Roll USA back in March. I’m training right now to return to Virginia Beach for the half marathon this time around, and I cannot wait!

  5. I’m so excited for you! I can’t wait to read the recap!
