My husband and I headed out to Las Vegas on Friday for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon on Sunday. Here's a plot synopsis.
I got to meet up with a spark friend, JLITT62 a couple of times and we had a great time.
I got my first foot massage on Monday....that really helped a lot because I did a ton of walking.
I forgot the brownies I was bringing for JLITT and had to turn around and pick them up from home. This added an hour on to our already long drive. I didn't want to disappoint, though.
Circus Circus is really, really far from any other "good" hotels. We did a lot of walking which was good and bad. I definitely got a lot of exercise and it doesn't seem like I did anything bad to my recovering foot.
The whole race organization. No, I didn't run it but I heard and saw a lot of bad. They didn't do a good job of letting people know where they needed to be. Not cool. They promised shuttles back to the other hotels and we couldn't find them. They ran out of water at some of the stations and they ran out of medals for the runners. They also had green bananas which is pretty crappy. Part of the problem was probably due to the Las Vegas hotel policy of making everybody walk through the hotel (I assume that's a policy...you certainly do a lot of walking through casinos to get anywhere). Thousands of cold, tired, hungry runners having to slog through the hotel. I felt bad for them.
Would I go and do it again (when I'm running again)....maybe but I'd wait a couple of years for them to work out the bugs.
Doing lots of laundry and raking leaves today. Back to work tomorrow.
