Hi friends! I did it again! I registered for the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon. A few things happened last month that led to this decision. First, my Spooktacular half marathon was bumped up a week to October 12, which happens to be the same day as my Pink concert. (Don’t worry, I have a game plan). Second, my Frozen Hot Chocolate 10k race in September was postponed… indefinitely! What is going on with these race organizers?! Is this a common thing?
Naturally, I was looking for a replacement race after I heard about the “postponement.” That is when my beautiful friend, Brittan, contacted me about doing the half marathon in Las Vegas. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. Las Vegas? Running? Two of my favorite things! Plus I haven’t seen Brittan since…forever!
Brittan and I met in college. I remember the day clearly. It was the beginning of our junior year. She sat next to me in one of our many finance classes and said, “Hey! Aren’t we in three other finance classes together?” We have been friends ever since. We have had some good times! Everything from swap meet adventures to rolling 20s birthday parties.
And of course we graduated together in 2009, both with a degree in finance. Do we work in finance? That’s another story.
As you may remember, I was contemplating about doing the Rock ‘n’ Roll half in L.A. but decided to do the Spooktacular race instead. I am so, so, sooooo excited for this race! I don’t think I have been more excited for a race yet! For starters, the course is through the Las Vegas Strip. I have ran the Strip before, but of course it will be different this time since they close the entire Strip down for the race. (Yay for no stairs!) Secondly, it is a night race! This will be my first night race, which I hope will work towards my advantage since that is typically when I train. Last but definitely not least, I get to see Brittan again!
Question of the day:
Have you had any experience with race “postponement” or rescheduling?
