Recap of Las Vegas

Finally getting around to writing about Las Vegas.  I didn't take that many pictures this time, because you can only have so many pictures of the same resort!  This makes our third time going to Vegas! And it gets better each time!
What better way to write a summary of something other than using pictures!!! :)
Day 1

In the airport at Nashville waiting for our number to be called!

Flying over the Rockies!

Caesar's Palace, the Forum Shops!

The guys....already over the walking!!! They said that Jessica and I walked them to death!

Our view for lunch

At Margaritaville for lunch!!!

sharp car on the strip...i think Chris said it was a Porsche

At the Wynn in front of a beautiful waterfall

At Kahunaville the first night eating dinner about 2:00am...Vegas time, which means 4:00 my time!! I was running on pure adrenaline at this point!!!!

Glow Run for a Cure 5K

Our Relay for Life was this past weekend and on the Thursday before they had a 5K to kick start the event.  It was called Glowing for a Cure.  To be honest I wasn't expecting that big of a crowd, due to it being on a Thursday night and it really wasn't advertised that much. But there was a wonderful turnout!!!!! There was about 80+ runner/walkers, which is really good for our town.

I wasn't expecting any PRs, but I did better than I expected!! My official time was 27:44, so I was very pleased! And I was 13th overall!!!! With about a half mile to go, I looked over my shoulder to see if anyone was back there and about 30 feet back there one girl.  Coming around the townsquare with about 3/10s to go I could feel her gaining on me, I didn't want to go full power yet, as I rounded the last curve, I dropped the hammer (Chris's favorite saying) and went full Beast and I be darn if she didn't too.  We were hashing it out to the finish line. I am talking palms open, full stride, RUN!! She beat me by 1/2 second!!! After I caught my breath and saw that I wasn't dying, I went over and asked her if she was the one that just gave me a run for my money and she said yes, I said good race. I then asked how old are you, she replied 33, I just turned and walked off!! There went my 3rd place in my age group!!!! I knew that 1st and 2nd was tied up.  But I can't hang my head, I gave it my all, I had ran one time last week and gave it a 110%!!! This is one time I am looking forward to my birthday and turning 35 I will leave this very competitive age division!!! Especially since Jessica is now in my age group!! :)

Carter was the real winner, he placed 5th overall and PR'ed big time with a 24:51!!! He ran with one of our running buddies and paced the entire race with him!!!

Maddie ran the little Kid's 1/2 Mile Race!! She was super excited, but when I met her coming down the townsquare she was crying, her legs hurt, her hips hurt, etc!!! Oh the Drama!!!! She got a medal and all was good!!! My niece also ran the Kid's Race

My Momma and Sister also ran the race and my Momma won her age division!!!  Jessica was Beast that night!! She won first in our age group.

Maybe he will run with me someday, until then I will take him being a spectator and cheering us on!!!

My Partner in Crime!!!!!

I love this our girls!!!! Poor Maddie was crying, she said her hips and legs wasn't made for running!!!! LOL
