My Vegas Trip- What I can Share

This weekend was a really good time.  But let’s be honest, I’m not going to tell all about it.  I mean, it was a bachelor party, you know?

I did, though, complete a run.  And that was a ton of fun.  Well, maybe not a ton of fun, but a very fulfilling accomplishment!  I ran.  In 105 degree weather.  Whew.  I started the run, and there were no sidewalks.  No worries, I just ran on the shoulder.  Along Las Vegas Boulevard (way south of The Strip), which is a 50 mph zone.  But it was fine.

I started my run and thought that the M Resort was maybe a mile and a half or 2 miles away.  So if I ran there and back, I was expecting 3-4 miles.  And in the heat, I thought that would definitely sap out a lot of my energy. As I was running, I did have my energy sapped out–as expected.  What wasn’t expected was that each way was over 3 miles!  Yikes.  I wasn’t even 2/3 of the way to my goal and I looked at my mileage: 2miles.  Holy Moses, this wasn’t going to be a short little jaunt.  Ugh.  So I got to the M, and turned around.  And Ran (and walked) back.  I got back and I had gone 6.29 miles in 1:11:14.  I ran a 10k in 105 degree heat.  Yikes.  Whoo hoo!

Here’s a picture I took from the M, looking back at the condo we were staying at:

  1. Did the lack of humidity help at all? I'm proud of you getting a run in!
