NOLA Fray Embraces New Orleans' Inner Child

NOLA Fray's softball team brings it in.

It’s always nice to celebrate the unexpected — for instance, athletes who are particularly unambitious. A new local group called NOLA Fray will be spotlighting unambitious athletes on February 9 with their 0.5K run. That’s right — a 0.5K beginning at Miel Brewery. NolaVie’s Kelley Crawford invites NOLA Fray City Commissioner Ilana Obuchowski into the studio for a preview.
