Anywho, tomorrow I am embarking on an AWESOME adventure.


What is it? Well, I'm so glad you asked!

Pavement Runner (along with some of his crazy crew) started a tradition a few years back. You see, the Rock 'N' Roll Las Vegas Half and Full Marathons are night races. Not only did these runners want to tackle a race at a different time of the day, they also wanted to see if they could push themselves even further... Why not try to run MULTIPLE races in the same day?! RnRLV works (almost) perfectly for this sort of challenge because the majority of road races normally start in the morning hours, so you still (hopefully) have time to make it to the evening starting line.

The only 'problem' is figuring out the logistics and picking a morning race that will work. Two years ago they did #SA2LV (Rock 'N' Roll San Antonio to Rock 'N' Roll Las Vegas). Last year they did #Disney2LV (runDisney's Avengers Half Marathon to Rock 'N' Roll Las Vegas). The hubby and I were "only" running the runDisney's Avengers Half Marathon that weekend, but when we met up with a group of them for dinner the night before their double race day they definitely had me enticed!

Well, when they decided on a San Diego race for the morning portion of this year's plan (the Silver Strand Half Marathon), I sort of HAD to tag along, right?!

There was originally going to be a bigger crew of us, but scheduling conflicts arose and we are down to a FANTASTIC TRIO - Pavement Runner, FitFam6 and myself. Even though we are the only ones officially tackling #SD2LV, there will be PLENTY of friends at both races (not to mention other crazies doing similar challenges and some even adding MORE races on Friday and Saturday!)!

So the game plan currently:


  • Silver Strand Half Marathon: 7:30am (but I'll need to leave my house by 4:30am so I can get down to the finish line and meet friends to drive to the starting line since it is a point-to-point race)

  • Fly To Vegas
  • Rock 'N' Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon: 4:30pm (but there is a pre-race festival and concert, so I would assume I'll head towards that once I land and drop my gear)

  • #WeRunSocial Un-Official Post-Race Hang Out: 9pm under the Eiffel Tower, Paris Hotel/ Casino (since not everyone can make it to the official WRS Meet Up, folks thought we'd get together to hang out, selfie it up and celebrate after the race)


  • #WeRunSocial Official VIP Meet Up: 11:45am in front of the Bellagio Fountains (we will be moving to the Spanish Steps in front of Cesar's Palace after the AMAZING photo that you do NOT wanna miss - like, legit, we may break the InterWebz!)


Everything else is more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants sort of thang. I am stoked to spend the weekend running with some amazing friends and hanging out with even more of my BRF (best running friends)! This will definitely be a weekend to remember, that's for sure!

Obviously I will have race recaps (along with probably a post or two about the shenanigans that went down - but you know what "they" say about what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so if you are around I'd DEFINITELY consider stopping by or else you may just miss out), but I'm not taking my computer with me so won't be posting on the blog till after I get back.

What is the craziest thing you have planned for this weekend?
