Rock N Roll Las Vegas 10K

Rock N Roll Las Vegas 10K

我的腿转不快了,我的速度是10.30英里。

I've told coach Mary that I will run SLOWWWW,the only way I convinced her to let me run the Rock N Roll 10K,而且看来我的身体无论如何都不会让我移动得更快。上周末我到底是怎么跑26英里以上的??

我们跑了55必威官网00包,在我们都知道的拉斯维加斯之外,向市中心方向,经过朋友们的婚礼小教堂,The Hangover,还有布兰妮·斯皮尔斯。

I'm happy to stop for photos with Zoe,一个友好的警察拍摄的日落,another by a sign for Vegas in Downtown,我忍不住笑了。太阳下山了,我们正朝着脱衣舞走去……(试着忽略特朗普塔上闪烁的光芒)。

尽管我没有节奏,我脸上挂着微笑,and I am remembering the love I have of 必威官网running,尤其是,参加大型比赛。I love the camaraderie,the atmosphere and the achievement that comes with crossing the finish line,无论距离如何。距离纽约马拉松最近几英里的痛苦记忆随着每一步都在逐渐消失。

突然,it's not so hard to speed up.我的腿感觉更轻,我沿着球场边跳——随着人行道上无数乐队演奏的音乐跳舞(毕竟这是10公里摇滚乐)。)

在我5公里糟糕的比赛照片之后,I decided to use my phone instead of GoPro for pics,and actually stop to take them – plus it seems the race photographers were out in force.这是我第二次买比赛照片(另一次是伦敦马拉松,我的第一次26.2-它们可能非常昂贵,hence my reluctance in the past but I've got a blog on how to get cheap race photos coming up!)

I did slow right down again after a surge of speed when I remembered Mary's advice,and knew she could track me to ensure I was sticking to the plan.It was such a fun race,这是对5公里的一大改进,然而,我禁不住嫉妒那些跑半程马拉松的人,必威官网在地带的另一边涌动。The 10K route has you on the main strip for only 必威betwayabout a mile,whereas it seems that at least half (if not more) of the 13.1 race is run alongside the casinos,bars and hotels.这条路一年只关闭两次,对于RNR比赛,新年前夜(我可以想象在维加斯的NYE一定有点疯了!)

Rock N Roll Las Vegas 10KI loved 必威官网running with Zoe,we were able to run all three races in one week side-by-side,太可爱了,因为我一年只见到她两次,现在她住在纽约(虽然你可能看到她昨天在伦敦必威betway工作,所以我们一起跑了!))

穿过终点线,并排(尽管我们有相同的完成时间,somehow she finished 1 runner ahead of me??!maybe it's the surname,当我在九月改名时,迫不及待地想把登记册调高!)

1.07人死亡。

当然也遵守了我的承诺,不会加快步伐。It was just what I needed,知道我没有时间在纽约之后“休息”,就像我在每一次马拉松之后那样。这一次,2月26日的东京训练已经相当直接了。有14个星期我才能到达起跑线,我想感受到惊喜。I'm going to be vlogging my weekly runs so watch this space…

After finishing,we enjoyed a lot of free chocolate milk (we might have circled back twice to get more freebies),收集了我们的珠宝和精美的袋子,并试图让我们的方式The Venetian.I was meant to meet up with Jess but a combination of zero phone service and thousands of people meant that our fall back plan to meet up at the hotel was put into action.

她发现我穿着比基尼洗澡,戴着我的奖牌,drinking champagne.Standard.

The lovely folks atThe Venetianhad left us a bottle of welcome fizz in our room,这是我们为最后一个晚上所保留的。They also laid out a spread of fruit,为10公里后返回酒店的跑步者提供水和鳄鱼皮,半途而废的马拉松——真是个好主意。I had a lot of drunken partiers asking if I'd won the race… maybe next year 😉

作为我的Rock N博客大使角色的一部分,我被免费加入了这场比赛。照片来自我的iPhone和马拉松信息。非常感谢威尼斯人在我们逗留期间接待我们。

    做得好!我一直在考虑做一个拉斯维加斯的运行有一段时间(我运行纽约几年前)。What I want to know is,what's the weather like in Nevada this time of year?我猜比英国暖和。
