Honors College takes group to run in New Orleans

Running a half-marathon would appear daunting to some people. However, students in the Honors College at the University of Alabama say that with a group of encouraging friends it is not only an attainable goal, but also a great way to get in shape and have fun too. The Honors College will be taking a group of students to run the New Orleans Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon this year on March 4. “It is a great way to have community when you run,” Blair Baskin, this year’s group organizer, said. Students can register for the half-marathon online at runrocknroll.competitor.com.
