I’ve lost some steam in training for this half marathon and do not really know what’s next. Since I have the Fred Lebow Half this weekend, I’ll see where I am in terms of training for the New Orleans Half Marathon.
I’m really hoping that the weather gods are working in our favor to have non-freezing temps or snow.
Another Run Rock n Roll Rant:
Last week, I received an email from the lovely folks at Rock n Roll saying the New Orleans Half Marathon course has been changed.
They converted a course that would have been a nice tour of New Orleans to a basic in-and-out course along Lake Pontchartrain. This complete bullsh*t. The old course would have taken us along the Mississippi and through the French Quarter – two major things associated with New Orleans. I’m also annoyed that these changes were made AFTER I made accommodations within walking distance to the start. RnR says that they will have a shuttle to take runners to and from downtown NoLA. Knowing them, they’ll probably cancel the shuttle the night before the race.
Why the rant? Remember RnR canceled the full marathon after I registered for the race.
I get that we are still in a pandemic and adjustments have to be made at the last minute. However, I think this was a case of RnR not making sure everything was in order before opening registration.
Question of the Day:
Besides a last-minute race cancelation, how has a race organizer pissed you off?
