Default Mardi Gras Marathon

Has anyone done the Mardi Gras Marathon in LA? This year's on Feb 17th.

Work is likely to have me in St Tony's TX the week before. I am wondering if it's a big enough race to make it worth the side trip.

My team did it last year. I just joined and I'm undecided on whether or not I can fit it into my busy schedule. The only certainty is that I'm going to do Disney. I heard that the Mardi Gras was pretty much a straight stretch with a couple of U turns. I think I'd rather skate 26 miles indoors on a 100 M track than down and back, down and back... At least, send me around a block or something on my route. I'd be more inclined to skate it if I knew the route had been improved. Our team has a forum. You could try posting there for some additional information. Also, on the Mardi Gras' Myspace page, Chad Ackman, a member of my team posted a comment. You could send him a message for further information. I know he skated it last year.
Regards,
Jeff
