In Las Vegas with Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton

Well, we were back in Vegas for another fun filled weekend.

This trip we made our way out to the Summerlin area for a local 5km run to support the Nevada Cancer Institute. The run was hosted by the Las Vegas Four Seasons Hotel and was a first class event.

The weather was warmer than we are used to and the air was super dry but we both managed to place in our age groups. Tim was 2nd and I was 1st!

After the run, we had our photo taken with Kristen Dalton the current Miss USA.

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
