The race began at beautiful Lafayette Park in downtown New Orleans. Luckily, I was able to get a picture of the empty park on Friday when we walked to the expo. As you can tell in the video, Ashton is ready to run!
Our last stop before heading back to the hotel for an early bedtime was for prerace pizza. You know...carb-loading and all!
