It’s Official: I’m Headed to Las Vegas!

I realized a few days ago that while I’ve talked about it on Twitter, I’ve never “officially” announced this on my blog: I’m heading to Las Vegas in December to run in the Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon!

As soon as I first heard about a marathon in Vegas that takes you right up and down the strip, I knew I wanted to do it. And then when I found out that there are a bunch of really awesome bloggers that are going to be running it, I knew I had to be there too! I think I may actually be more excited about meeting all these great folks that I am for the actual run itself 🙂

I’m really looking forward to the 1/2 Marathon in Vegas. I’ve got my first 1/2 Marathon coming up in the middle of August right here in Anchorage, which is going to be full of hills and considering the weather we’ve had lately, likely quite rainy. If nothing else, the 1/2 Marathon in Vegas is going to be FLAT. And in December, the weather is likely to be clear and cool, especially since it starts at some ungodly hour like 6am.

For those of you that will be joining the fun in Vegas, I can’t wait to meet all you fabulous people! And for the rest of you, I’m sure we’ll still be thinking of you 🙂
