Las Vegas Rock and Roll Marathon

I went to Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino today, where the race starts, and picked up my packet for my first 1/2 marathon. It was incredible to see all of the Awesome booths, with the best running gear I have seen. Good thing I didn't bring any money because otherwise I would have bought a lot and I don't have the money for it right now. Got my packet and a free shirt inside which was Awesome, Suigo shirt, soo comfortable! I'm ready to Rock now!

I ended up being $200 short of my goal for my fundraising. I still have until Jan. 16th to raise more money but I really don't feel like asking people after the race. If people do great but if not I will poney up the difference.

Tomorrow, first thing, I have a training at the Suncoast for Herbalife, 10a.m.-4p.m., it will be a challenge waking up, since I am working 8p.m.-4a.m. tonight. After that, I am meeting up with Team Challenge(Crohns and Colitis group) at 6p.m. for a Pasta dinner at MGM Grand, then seeing Robin Williams at 8p.m.. I got a room for Saturday and Sunday at MGM Grand so I don't have to fight traffic. That and I love the spa suite they have there. I love Hot Tubes, Sauna's etc.!! The race is 6:15a.m. Sunday morning, we'll see how much if any sleep I get the night before.

Wish me luck. I will take pictures and post them up soon.
