Today New Orleans had its Iron Man celebration. I didn't think the movie came out until next month. Just kidding. The streets were blocked. it was safe to jaywalk - actually encouraged. It was more like a party than a grueling physical event where people push themselves to the brink of endurance. But the local committee (Crescent City Currents) told me the Big Easy makes everything a party. I believe them now. I can't wait to see what goes on at the conference. I know it will be good!!!
