Run Forest Run 5K

On Sunday the husband and I ran in a 5k race with 2 other couples in New Orleans.  It was sponsored by Bubba Gump Shrimp Co, and the proceeds went to Children's Hospital of New Orleans.

I had to wake up at 5am, and we had to leave at 6.  We all met up and headed to New Orleans.  We arrived around 7:45 to pick up our packets.  According to an article on Nola.com there were 1400 race participants.  The race started at 8:30.
 I didn't do as well as I wanted because I kept getting terrible cramps.  So I finished in 38:01, and it was hot as hell!

wore: LuLuLemon tank; Target capris

There was a ton of food and free beer afterwards.  I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've started drinking at 9am!  We all hung out for a bit afterwards and drank and ate food provided by Bubba Gump.

We ate again around lunchtime at a restaurant on Magazine Street called the Rum House!! It was AH-MAZING! 
Then we continued our drinking at not one, but 2 different Bulldogs in the city!  The Bulldog is a pet-friendly beer bar!  Its a fun place to hang out!

It was such a fun event! I was so glad we all did it together!!  Now I'm considering training for a half marathon in October. But I'm terrified I will die!
