I couldn’t wait to run the Rock n’ Roll Las Vegas Half for two main reasons:
1) I’d never been to Vegas and couldn’t wait to run the strip at night &
2) This would be my first half marathon with my hubby at my side!
The week leading up to the race, I became a bit grumpy with the way I’d beel feeling when I tried to run. I know that having micro tears in my calf and severe shin splints before Marine Corps, only meant that FULL rest time from running was needed to make sure I was 100%. I knew going into this race that we were in it to have fun, and it’d be the last time I pushed that distance for some time. So, we enjoyed two days at the expo, grabbed our bibs, and made a pact to enjoy this race TOGETHER!
We went to the expo on Thursday and Friday before the race. We were able to do and see so much!
Since we were staying at the MGM Grand, we were only about a block away from the Luxor Festival lot, where the Racer’s start village was being held. We were able to change our corral from 20 to 13 and hung out with Jen and SSR before the race kicked off.
