This was a bucket list for me to run the Vegas Strip, and no better day to do it than on our anniversary! Expo was great, took a lot of pictures, bought some race merchandise. We got there on Thursday Night and stayed up too late each night partying our hearts out (not conducive on a race weekend, buts its Vegas :) ) Saturday night was the pre party ( more partying) with Kesha as the headliner and it was amazing, they even had guest passes!! R'nR also provided a perks like complimentary entry to certain clubs and discount on buffets. Slept in Sunday, hit the Buffet at Paris Hotel, even got my hair braided felt good but the day felt dragging sine the race start was at 4:30pm. We somehow missed our corral and started a bit later (not till close to 6 pm) by that time I was already tired. Once started, it was very slow because of how many people were there, we were just shuffling for a bout a mile. The course took us towards the Excalibur, and the Las Vegas sign and turned around headed towards downtown. It was definitely different running at night after the strip it wasn't very lit and the crowd support wasn't much. After downtown we lost the full marathoners and eventually headed back on the strip and finish. The band on the course were just ok. It was very cool to have the strip closed down and be able to get pictures with no one else around. thankfully I went into this race for having fun and not for time since I had another race next week. All that walking and partying and less sleep definitely caught up on the last day. Next time I would get there, race first and then party!! The highlight was definitely pre race party with Kesha and running with hubby on our anniversary!!
