What is your favorite part of the Louisiana Marathon course?

The finish line festival of course—it’s the best out there!

What has been your favorite half or full marathon and why?

My first marathon was the United States Marine Corps Marathon touring through Washington DC. There’s something about running your first marathon with 40,000 others through our nation’s capital. And the support of those Marines can’t be beat. You never forget your first!

Steak and potatoes.

For people visiting Baton Rouge / Louisiana, what would be your top recommendation for what to do / eat / see?

Wander the streets and eat in a local restaurant and enjoy what makes this town unique. Who knows… if you keep your eyes open, you just might see me there right next to you!
