It is November 17 and I am in Las Vegas for my very first marathon race ever. I just had a carbo heavy breakfast and for the next few hours I will hydrating a lot and then stop drinking fluids at around noon – right after having another pasta lunch. I will drive to Las Vegas Blvd. and need to find a good parking spot for my car. Currently I am thinking of parking at the Monaco Casino as it is kind of half way between the start and the finish line.
The weather forecast for today looks awesome. Warm temperatures and very little wind – what else can one ask for. I am sitting here in the hotel room and enjoy the view. I see the mountain ranges surrounding Las Vegas and it looks really nice combined with the blue skies. Now it really has come down to just waiting. I will be carrying my camera tonight to take some pictures before, during, and after the run. Tomorrow I will be driving home to Colorado. So, my next blog posting should come out Tuesday or Wednesday.
