After flying into Vegas on the red-eye flight, a little bit of sleeping in will be needed for sure. Our first stop of Friday morning will definitely be checking out the expo before making our way around Vegas the rest of the day! Y'all know I love some expo shopping so it is likely I could do more damage here than at the blackjack tables! The Rock n Roll Las Vegas expo is one of their largest race expos of the year, so be sure to take some time and explore before heading out to conquer the day.
With the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas 5K in the evening, we will have most of the day to enjoy in Vegas before getting ready for our first race of the weekend. A nice breakfast/brunch buffet will probably be in order before doing some exploring around Vegas. We will have to remember that we do have a race to run this evening, so we don't want to be on our feet too much during the day, so I am thinking that a little relaxation while enjoying some college football at the casino might be needed.
In case you haven't heard, I will be co-hosting a #WeRunSocial meet up before the 5K! Come stop by, snap some selfies, meet up with old friends and make new friends all before the first race of the most epic race weekend!
With 13.1 miles on tap for me in the evening, it is critical that I don't over do it on Sunday. I am not going to lie - night races can be tricky. You get so used to a morning race routine that you can struggle to time when to eat your pre-race meal before your evening start time. I will definitely take it easy most of the day before eating a good lunch with a short nap in the afternoon.
The team at #WeRunSocial will be hosting an epic meetup pre-race that is sure to involve friends, fun, and of course selfies! If you are in Vegas Sunday, be sure to come say hi and hang out before heading to the start line. (Note: the 10K has a different start line and time than the half marathon and marathon. This meet up is near the half marathon and marathon start line)
Once we all finish and meet back up, we will be finding our way around the strip for some treats to celebrate our new bling!
Monday morning will likely start with some major food intake - you gotta refuel, duh! After that, we are hitting up the spa for hour long massages. We both definitely earned these massages and have been looking forward to this massage for weeks now! Of course some shopping and gambling will probably be on tap as well but after earning some sweet bling, what better way to celebrate than with friends!
