Happy Friday! We all have lots of different interests and hobbies. What are some of yours? For me, one of these is running. I may not be the fastest or the best runner, but running is something that I enjoy doing and make it a priority in my life. I run about 3 days a week and I love signing up for races! My favorite distance is the half marathon. I wasn't always a runner, though and the idea of running 13.1 miles was a joke! But, I actually started running about 5 years ago and have been at it ever since. Earlier this month I ran my 12th half marathon, the Run Laughlin Half Marathon, and it was super exciting too because this was Jason's 2nd half marathon and I was looking forward to running together for part of the race and and seeing him cross that finish line!
We took off on Friday afternoon to Laughlin, NV, which is about 1.5 hrs away from Vegas and we stayed at the Tropicana Laughlin, which was offering rooms at a special rate for runners, woohoo! We were running the race with a few other friends, so it was nice to have a carb loading dinner all together. The race went really well. If you're interested you can read all about that on my personal lifestyle blog HERE. After the race, we had our obligatory free beer, grabbed some In N Out (protein style for me) and headed back home to meet up with our kiddos!
