A Possible Plan ... Foiled!

I have been tossing around the idea of doing the 1/2 Marathon in Las Vegas. I liked doing the full Marathon there and love Las Vegas. A couple of my friends also expressed interest.

Then I double-checked the date.

Its the same weekend as my husbands holiday party. I could still do the race, his party is on Friday and the race is on Sunday. But thats what I did 2 years ago and it wasnt very fun. I couldnt drink at the party since I had to run 26.2 miles in less than 48 hours. We couldnt stay very late because I had an early flight to Vegas. And I spent the whole time worrying about what was in store for me.

Now obviously a 1/2 Marathon is a lot different than a full Marathon. I could probably have a drink or two. But I still couldnt stay at the party late, and my mind would still be elsewhere. There are other races to do and I think Im better off finding one that doesnt make me miss out on something else entirely :)

Back to the search...

There's plenty of races, but only one holiday party. You'll find a replacement race!
