What started as a talk between my hubby and I about going to Vegas for our wedding anniversary in September, has turned into us going to Vegas in December for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon instead! Neither one of us has ever done a half marathon before. I have been toying with the idea of running one, but I knew I wanted my first one to be memorable. I first started looking into half marathon’s in the Detroit area. All of them were occurring in the early Fall, which meant I would be training in the Summer time. Heat + Many Miles = No Fun. In my reasearch I came across the Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon and I knew this was the race for us. First of all, it’s in Vegas. We wanted to go there anyways this year and we got married there. Secondly, it’s at night on the strip. That is awesome! Thirdly, it is the Rock ‘n’ Roll series of races which everyone seems to rave about. There will be entertainment every mile and an after party. Fourthly, did I mention that it is in VEGAS!!! Fifthly, it is in December, so my training will occur in the Fall. Much more feasible.
Although I am giddy with excitement, I do have to mention that I am crossing every part of my body that Garth Brooks will have a show while we are in Vegas. I would LOVE to see Garth in Vegas! So Garth, if you are reading my blog . . . Please, please, please have a show on December 3rd!!!
As a side note, the mommy part of me is already feeling guilty about being away from Brennen for almost 3 whole days. I’m just trying to ignore that mommy voice right now so I can bask in my excitement!
