King (Queen) of New Orleans

This time tomorrow night I will be in New Orleans with one of my best friends from Seattle. My only plans for the weekend are to enjoy some amazing food and laugh a lot.

In other news, I am going to work on giving up sugar for lent. Details upon my return.

On Sunday, I had a pretty awesome 3 mile time trial if I do say so myself.
3 mile warm up at about 10 minutes miles
Mile 1- 7:50
Mile 2- 7:45
Mile 3- 7:39
Total time- 23:17

I'll take it.

My last 3 minute time trial was 24:15.  My main goal was to get in the 23 minute range. I'd say I exceeded that.  I am still struggling with the idea that my body can sustain sub 8-minute miles. Obviously not for long lengths, but it puts my half marathon pace more in the region of 8:30/min miles rather than 9/min miles.

So who's been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans? Whose want to go to Mardi Gras?
