I've posted before about staying healthy in New Orleans and it can be a tough one for musicians on the road. I happy to report the amount of great options in NOLA is growing. In this post I want to mention the Daily Beet, which has 2 locations in the city.
It was only in Nola for a couple of days for jazz fest and to play with Walk Talk but I still managed to get in a 10 mile run day one and 15 miles day two. Such a great way to enjoy a city. I was located near one of the Daily Beet locations at the St Roch market and it was a great source of postworkout nutrition. The rainbow bowl was essential! The smoothies were good as well.
For my longer run, I headed up to city park, ran along side the grass trail next to the levee and eventually ran along the lake. Really beautiful scenery and I ran at near dusk so although it was HOT, not unbearable.
