Ends up on my blog!
Not. :) I am silent on the bachelorette party; although, I can say that the bachelorette got lei'ed twice at the running expo.
We started out at 11 women for the party but just five of us lingered for the big half marathon walk. (Did anyone else out there purchase kick-ass Stetson boots at the Cowboy Christmas Fair, next door to the expo?) It was a fantastic bachelorette party weekend in Vegas. My first time ever. I was nervous and wondering why I hadn't done this when I was in my 20's but I have to say, Vegas is for everyone.
We saw George Lucas (we were too wimpy to ask him: "Why, why, WHY did you create JarJar Banks and ruin Star Wars?") though I never would have noticed him if not pointed out to me.
There have certainly been a lot of complaints about how crowded the Rock & Roll race was and I have to admit, I felt like I was 19 again in a mosh pit at a Nirvana concert as we were trying to make our way to our corral. We never made it, ended up jumping in as the corral went by. There were no shuttles as promised, so we walked 1.4 miles to the start from our hotel then walked 1.4 miles back again. At 11 p.m. When it was sprinkling and 35 degrees outside. Brrrr.
|There weren't many bands on the course so we decided to sing & add our own Rock & Roll to the event.|
|Yes, random dude with beer stopped to pose|
I felt complete after seeing Endorphin Dude around mile 6.
|Third RNR event, third Endorphin Dude encounter.|
|You can't see it, but these girls are each carrying 3 tall-boys.|
|Done! Where is that burger? It's 11 p.m. and we're HUNGRY!|
|A great ending to a fantastic weekend with some of the best friends a girl could hope for.|
