Good Stuff Ahead

CCC10k French Quarter

35th Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 2013 to Benefit American Heart Association -New Orleans – 3-30-13
It’s been since 2011 I have ran this race so I am quite excited to get to run it this year plus there is a new sponsor, improved course and runner corrals. This is really shaping up to be quite an event this year. In fact, I was not planning on even attending the Expo but when I heard Bart Yasso – Chief Running Officer, Runner’s World will be in attendance speaking on “How to be a better runner” I was sold. How fortunate this will be on Good Friday when I am off work that day! (whew). I mentioned to a friend that I MUST get my picture taken with Bart Yasso! We are Twitter buddies so we go way back right ??!! LOL! I wish I could get there early enough on Friday to attend his “Shake Out” run but I keep telling myself I can’t do everything. Good friends, 12k+ runners, great course (going down Poydras, through the French Quarter, passing Jackson Square, turning left on Esplanade Avenue and continuing to City Park) How could it get better?? Well I’ll tell you how.. My 13 year old daughter has stepped in for a friend that had to drop out. so Crescent City graciously transferred her entry at no charge so she will be running her 1st 10k!!!! Well I say run it will be more like a walk/jog but I told her “A Finish is a Finish” and there will be a Finisher medal waiting for her!! Considering she has not gone farther than a 5k this is HUGE for her.. She told me earlier in the year she wanted to start training for a 10k. This one was a bit sooner than expected but she is looking forward to it.

This will definitely be an EPIC weekend!!!

  1. How awesome to have your daughter run with you! I just started running this year, did my 1st 5K last weekend, and I’m signed up for my 1st 10K on May 4th, the 35th annual Longhorn Stampede…I’m a Texas alum, didn’t graduate, but I still bleed burnt orange 🙂
    Be sure to let us know how you do, both of you!

  2. Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Enjoy the race and I can’t wait to see your pic with Bart! You’re right-you’re twitter friends so you def need a pic! lol
