RnRNOLA Tweet Up

It’s finally here! My post baby half marathon debut at the Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans half marathon! I can’t wait to have some fun with this race. I am not in shape to PR, but this race is all about proving to myself that I can do this distance again.

Bobby and I leave for New Orleans tomorrow afternoon. We are dropping Emma Kate off at my parents house outside of NOLA, then heading to our hotel for the weekend! Now for the fun part: Saturday we are having a tweet up at Café du Monde! There will be several Rock ‘n Bloggers there, and beignets, of course, so who can resist that?
