Tim and I ran the Las Vegas Half Marathon this Sun. There were just under 15,000 runners. WOW! It was a lot of fun. They had many entertaining things along the way to help make the long distance a little less painful. There was a huge firework display at the start, then we ran down the strip, there were Elvis impersonators everywhere, some ladies with Jesus posters shouted at us that Jesus was happy we were running, but that we should also be at church :), there was a run through chapel at mile five, and then the last four miles went down Industrial Ave... otherwise known as stripper row. So it was fun, but let me tell you, those last four miles hurt like crazy. It felt like there were nails in my knees. Luckily Tim was there to encourage me not to walk, or I might have started to crawl.... and cry. We ran the whole way, which was our goal, so I guess it went well. I did walk a few yards at mile twelve because I stopped for gatorade and just couldn't figure out how to run again. It may not have been the most scenic run, but it was a good one to do for a first marathon because it was flat the whole way. Now if I can just stop limping I'll chalk it up to a good experience!!!!!
