I woke up this morning, the Friday before Mardi Gras, to news about an oil spill in the Mississippi River, a shooting on St. Charles Avenue during a parade, a car driving in to the side of a house in the Lower 9th Ward, and the pending weather events of the weekend … and then I got to work with the ability to display the above scenery in my office. Its days like these that I am reminded how much I love living in New Orleans and couldn’t imagine being anyplace else.
Now how does this post apply to a blog on Claim Your Journey? I can easily justify it by pointing out that runners appreciate a good shoe. Heck, I know endurance athletes that could give Imelda Marcos a run for her money (pun intended). However, as much as I am attached at the foot to my Brooks Ravenna 2′s … I wouldn’t trade the above for anything in the world!
And with that I say … HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
