Lucky for me I have a racecation in the plans. Our Spring Break is in April, and that is the perfect time for a weekend away. Ali and I will be joining my best friend Larisa and her husband Donald in New Orleans for the Crescent City Classic 10K on April 19th. We will be meeting up with some of our other blogger friends for a fun weekend in the Big Easy. Larisa and I will be running the 10K, and I'm hoping Ali's knee will be healed enough I let him run as well. I know he is anxious to get active in running again.
Have you ever done the CCC10K? I went last year and had a blast! Here is a photo of the crew last year...
I was relegated to walking the 10K last year due to both knees being injured, but I plan on running it this year!! This race is on an awesome flat course. Who wouldn't love running through New Orleans?!?
ALSO, we got a great medal at the finish.
I can't wait to see what this year's medal will look like. The medals were such a hit last year, that they have decided to provide them again this year!
I know you want to sign up and join us down there. You can even do it for free!! There are still a lot of Charity spots open for the race. You can participate for free by joining the "Run For It" Program: people can choose to register (for free) and fundraise for 1 of 10 local (and deserving) charities. They will get an upgraded race t-shirt, a special "Charity" bib number, and perks on race day (private port-o-lets/gathering areas at the start & finish) in exchange for raising a minimum of $200 for their Charity by race day. CCC10K has already raised over $6,000, but hope to reach $1 million! The online fundraising platform (where you can see all 10 teams and team members) is here: http://www.crowdrise.com/CrescentCityClassic
Look how easy it is to sign up :)
