The moment we have been waiting 6 months for is here! Louisiana has entered Phase 3, which means……. nothing for New Orleans. Enjoy the non-alcoholic hurricanes*.
Schools and colleges are back in session. College Football, the only thing that matters, is starting soon. (Or it isn’t*.) Lesser pro sports have been playing in bubbles and getting strip club take-out. The NFL is coming back to New Orleans, so the Dome will be …… silent.
The only thing we know for sure is Racist activities are no longer acceptable. Racists have been forced underground into online groups like Strava, Fitbit, or Runkeeper. Virtual 5ks and step challenges are the only way they can get their fix.
But fear not! JBE, JP, and your ole pal Jack have been crunching numbers and chugging bleach to bring you a taste of the New Normal! This Thursday we present the first USATF certified* in-person 5k just for the Voodoo!
Wear your best old Race shirt, shorts, visor, socks, or whatever and fire up your Garmin for the fastest Hash on earth**!
