While the world “lazy” is usually not in our vocabulary, we think we have a legitimate reason to sit on our butts and do nothing but creep social media, blog and watch TV until race time. Why is that you ask? Well let me count the ways…
Friday night wasn’t just the first night I got in, but also the first time to stay up way past my old-man 10 p.m. bedtime to meet the slew of other bloggers descending upon Las Vegas.
Allow me too geek out for a moment, but Janae is as nice in person as she is in her blog. Aron and I are both in the process of brainwashing her to move to NorCal. I think we’re making good progress.
Sorry Janae, I totally stole the “smile like Janae” photo off your blog.
Oh heeeeeeeeeey Ali, fancy spotting you randomly post-dinner. Don’t mind us, we’ll just interrupt your date night and talk about nothing but running for 30 minutes to ensure that your boyfriend is uncomfortable.
Oh, and in case you didn’t know, these Steven by Steve Madden boots are all the rage. Proof.
The next day was one for the record books as Aron and I participated in the Santa Run 5K – complete with a five piece Santa suit. Race report coming soon.
After the Santa mayhem we headed to the expo to pick up our bibs. Uhhh…marathon? Not what I had in mind for this weekend.
Ok, ok, if you have to twist my arm.
The remainder of the day was filled with two more blogger meet-ups and some of the most delicious margaritas ever. Don’t we look sophisticated?
If anyone asks you if drinking and dancing until the wee hours of the morning is an appropriate pre-race strategy? Say YES! Dancing the night away with my favorite people was one of the best parts of the trip thus far!
Janae and I like to get low, low, low, low.
Yes, Jess’ booty is THAT good.
Oh hey Chicken Face, don’t worry. I’m alive. Now let me sing you a special little song.
Oh, and in case you wanted to know what it was like rooming with four bloggers/runners while in Vegas, I think these before and after room photos can sum it up best:
Tonight’s race is sure to be one of the most interesting races I’ve ever done. With no PR, fuel or race strategy in hand, I’m ready to try and have as much fun as possible. We’ll report back soon on more Vegas shenanigans.
