RnR Las Vegas | Training

It's finally happening... finally running Vegas... finally running a RnR race (bad reviews aside, I still want to run one and see it for myself)... and finally, another running vacation with my best girlfriends (there's at least 8 of us that I can think of!). I. Cannot. Wait.

Training was technically supposed to begin two weeks ago, but I'm hardly calling it that I did, so I've modified my plan a bit and am cranking out a 10-week plan instead. It's grueling, it's motivating, and I just need to get back at it. I'm already signed up for a 5K in two weeks (first 5K since June, mind you) that I will be doing with work (don't you love it when worlds collide?) and am eye-balling my 10K for the first weekend in October. I have plans. I just need to make them happen.

So here you have it. The plan.

The New Week 1 has started off well so far - at least in comparison to Old Week 1 and 2. I am ready to make this commitment and make it a great race and get myself back to where I used to be. Because I miss it. But look forward to the first full report on Sunday afternoon when I get through the first uber long run - I think that'll be the tell-tale sign of how this is going to go!

Will this be the magic race for #sub2orbust? I'm not sure. I think it's too early to make that call, especially given the lack of running over the course of the last two months. But maybe!. Stay tuned.

Are you running the Strip at Night with me? 


  1. I really wanted to but I am running the Surfer's Point Half which is on the exact same day in Ventura. Vegas is really fun. It was my first Marathon but when it will still during the day. Have fun!

    1. I am sooooo excited for Vegas! We need to find a race again soon please! :)

  2. I ran Vegas Half last year and loved it! There were a lot of people (duh) but there were plenty of water stations and getting to the start line went really smoothly. The only thing I was expecting more of was music. While you're on the strip it's great, but then they bring you through some residential areas (miles 6-10 pretty much) and it's kind of creepy.

    You're going to do great and totally rooting for your sub 2!
