Despite how much fun there is to have in Las Vegas, I kept focused on my plan to take it easy during the day. However, I didn't want to lay around the hotel all day. We had an early lunch at "no name pizza" (you will have to Google it) and some football watching which was a lovely way to spend the morning.
Most of the first mile takes you south from in front of Mandalay Bay towards the airport. About a half of a mile in, you pass one of the most iconic pieces of Las Vegas - the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Duh, we had to stop! Tonight's race wasn't about time, it was about having a great time and making awesome memories together.
We continued our way down Las Vegas Blvd, but don't worry, we will soon be back as the finish line is in front of The Mirage.
Shout out to the awesome staff there that were so awesome seeing if anyone needed anything and refilling the toilet paper and paper towels. The staff really got a kick out of the fact that I got a Coke to go. Yes, I proceeded to run the next mile carrying a Coke (thankfully I remembered the lid and straw this year).
