2nd Annual (and probably last) Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon

Mom, John and I traveled to Las Vegas over the weekend so that Mom and I could run the half in Las Vegas. Running this race was sort of a last-minute decision, and as a result I was totally unprepared. I ran this same race last year and had a PR, but I also ran 400 miles over the year to prepare for the race. This year, I think I have run a total of maybe 25 miles, so I suppose I should be proud of myself for finishing.

Let's face it, I really only went for the post-race concert -- Bret Michaels! He was awesome and sounds just like he did 20 years ago. He was also filming the concert for his VH1 show, so I will have to look for myself in the audience on the show.

Other than the pain associated with the race, we had a fun time in Sin City. John won some money playing blackjack, and it's always fun to people watch at all the casinos. However, I think we had our fill of Vegas for awhile!

Pre-race, bright and early!

There were over 30,000 runners that took over The Strip

Really gross shot of Mom and me after the race.
