New Orleans - French Quarter

Time: 45 minutes
Distance: 6 miles
Effort: Easy
Body: Good
Weather: Cloudy & coo

Squeezed a quick six miles in with CB between all-day meeting and dinner. We ran south along the levee next to the Mississippi River, past the French Quarter then down a long straight road that separated a poor neighborhood from a railroad track and some old docks. Great to see a bit more of New Orleans. The pace was easy, but quick. We probably ran most of it around a 7:30ish pace.


  1. Glad you enjoyed your run in and around the Quarter and the Bywater. FYI, you can run the whole way on the dock if you want :)

  2. Thanks, Ann. On the way back, we saw another runner coming down from the tracks. He pointed us to the docks. We did run them all the way back to the paved levee area. Seems like a resource that ought to get upgraded a bit. Be great to better connect those neighborhoods to the river.
