Was kind of nervous about doing this Half so soon after having a baby, but I am really pleased with my efforts and the end result! This course in Baton Rouge was absolutely gorgeous, and it was a very well staffed event. Ran with Tim and Amanda, but had to slow back around mile 7 or so when my stomach cramps that started at mile 3 started getting worse. Cramps didn't stop until after the finish, so I had to battle with that the whole way. Had a fabulous time other than that though, and would love to do this Half again next year!

    Way to persevere! I had the opportunity to run in Baton Rouge last summer. Was part of the route around the lakes? That's an awesome place to run!
