  • 2014 Luling Bridge 5K & 10K

    By LRC Staff on 04/08/2014
    Although inclement weather conditions seemed inevitable for Saturday’s 2014 Luling Bridge 5k and 10k, put on by New Orleans Running Systems, the running gods were forgiving enough to prevent rain from drenching the competitors throughout the race. The Luling Bridge, a steep climb for a New Orleanian, proved to be a worthy adversary, as evidenced by several runners grimacing their […]

  • Mizuno Wave Rider 17

    By LRC Staff on 03/05/2014
    The Mizuno Wave Rider 17 is versatile, comfortable and makes a great component to your training. If you’re looking for a shoe that can handle the mileage, but without all the weight, this is the shoe for you. The U4IC midsole adds a springy step and it’s 2 ounces lighter than the previous model. The Wave Rider 17 is recommended […]

    By LRC Staff on 02/09/2014
    The first annual King Cake Festival at Championship Square started off with a one mile fun run complete with decorated strollers and runners in plenty of costumes. Racing her way to the finish, Sarah Skotty flew past the competition, all while pushing a stroller. A ticket was only 10$ and with it, you could eat and vote for your favorite […]
  • LRC Run Group 386 & 387

    By LRC Staff on 02/06/2014
    At this weeks run group a few key things happened. First, a pair of shoes were raffled away to Emily Mase, granting her desperate wish for new shoes, as she won run grouper of the month honors. Next, the fire usually attended to by very muscular and masculine men of LRC, was (wo) manned by Beth Sherwood, who although didn’t […]
  • The Life and Times of Karjuan Williams

    By LRC Staff on 02/06/2014
    It is a fact that everyone from New Orleans has a story.  Often these stories take on the aura of the city itself: regarded by many, beset by tragedy, but always resilient.  There’s a Katrina story, or a “where were you when the Saints won the Super Bowl” story, and then the ever present story of where you grew up […]
  • Brooks Transcend

    By LRC Staff on 02/05/2014
    The new Brooks Transcend is really out of this world. Its supportive, but doesn’t have the bulky foams of normal running shoes. Instead, it used “Guide Rails” to guide the foot into a neutral position. Basically this shoe is like running on a plush, comfy cloud that feels so natural, you won’t even know it’s on. It’s our pick of […]
  • 2014 Rock & Roll Marathon / Half

    By LRC Staff on 02/04/2014
    Starting in the fog and mist, runners crossed the starting line, hoping the rain would hold out until the afternoon. Unfortunately, if you finished anywhere after about 1 hour and 20 minutes, you were out of luck. The humidity was at almost 100%, and after talking to the various people from the west coast and the northern states, it was […]
  • Shoe of the Week: Pearl Izumi N2

    By LRC Staff on 01/30/2014
    The Pearl Izumi M2 is our pick of the week because it’s both functional and with all the cool color choices, very fashionable. This shoe is made for the over-pronator who wants a lighter weight feel. With the right amount of cushioning for fast tempo runs and the upper of the shoe that makes it feel like a sock for […]
  • LRC Run Group 384 & 385

    By LRC Staff on 01/30/2014
    This weeks run group has got to be some of the coldest I’ve experienced. All the humans were dressed in layers upon layers of cold weather gear. Living outside in New Orleans my whole life, I almost lost one of my nine to this frigid weather. On Monday, everyone was preparing for a snow day and planning on hunkering down […]

  • 2014 Forge Trail Series: Dirty Soles 5K, 10K, & Half Marathon

    By LRC Staff on 01/26/2014
    - By Ky Kastes Although Forge Racing’s motto, “Off the Grid,” is very fitting, after this weekend, one could definitely say it should be more like, “It’s not the Destination, but the Journey.” It wasn’t just a race, but a test of instinct and strategy. The Dirty Soles 5k, 10k and Half Marathon was the start of this year’s Subaru […]
