A favorite distance is hard to pick! My best marathon is 2:55, which I ran in 2014.

I like the long, straight portions of the LA Marathon course along Kleinert and Sevenoaks Avenues.

My pre-race meal is steak and potatoes!
For people visiting Baton Rouge / Louisiana, what would be your top recommendation for what to do / eat / see?
Check out the Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site. It is a bit north of Baton Rouge near St. Francisville. A closer alternative to take in some culture and history is the LSU Rural Life Museum
in Baton Rouge.
