I WANT to run Vegas sooooo badly!!! It will be so awesome at night!! But it'll have to be next year. :( So jealous!!

Nelly said...

Sounds like a great trip!

The girl doing a cartwheel into the wall must have been classic to see! haha

Sounds like a good call on not wearing your headphones on the treadmill, those stories you overheard must have been great.

How does the PITA fit into an airplane? I'm assuming you guys have to fly business or first class or else he doesn't actually fit into the seat?

I've been to Vegas 4 times I think, craziest scene I've been around is being there for January 1st, the strip was just nuts. It was too nuts for me, I wouldn't go back there for a holiday.

Allison said...

Nope, won't be there. It's my baby's 3rd birthday!

Craziest thing I've seen in Vegas? My girlfriend get a lap dance at a seedy strip club. Ha!

Char said...

So I'm right in thinking you had a good time?

MCM Mama said...

Crazy girl! Glad you had a good time!

DC will be much more sedate LOL.

Cynthia said...

Never been to Vegas but if I do ever get to run the ATY 24hour race in Phoenix I will do a Vegas trip afterwards.

LB said...

ah vegas! LOVE vegas! craziest thing i have seen: drunk guy attacking people by throwing creamer packs at them as they get into the elevator at 430 am. then the struggle with security as they try to reason with a drunk man throwing creamers at people.

sadly, i dont think i will make vegas in december, i will be about a month too early. le sigh!

Silly Girl Running said...

Oh gee...how I'd love to run Vegas. The 10 hour flight is kind of putting me off, though...As is the $1,000 air fare... :(

Christi said...

I have never been to Vegas but everyone seems to think I should go. Maybe I should!

She said I need a goal said...

#444444 - number of times I smiled reading this post.

Caroline said...

ah Vegas....the best way to go is to drive from California...you drive in the desert, there is nothing...and then PAF! crazy town is there!...crazies thing I have seen there is hands down my mother in law. She wins the title.

I will not run there this year :(
Not fait for the family and espacially for Bill.

These comments cannot hold my Vegas stories. My buddies and I had a "Hangover" type of night there a few years back - we will have the share that one over a beer after we run an ultra one day (-:
