Guess Where I'm Going

"Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas"

-"The King"

Yup, I'm going to Las Vegas.

I'm leaving on Wednesday, for a work thing. Yes, for a work thing! I promise. I have to question the motives of whoever thought this was a good place to do work-related anything but a) I didn't make that decision b) This is actually the third time I go to Vegas for work stuff.

More importantly, this is the first time I go there as a runner so you know I will be reporting back to you guys about all the trouble I get myself into (which will be running related of course). Also, as it has become customary on this blog, if I manage to take any decent pictures I will share them with you as well. I will be staying at the Golden Nugget so I'm thinking long run to the Vegas sign and back? Stay tuned...

Also a little further ahead, my friend and fellow Team runDisney member Donald, who I met during the Disney Marathon is working on something special for the blog so don't go anywhere. It will be a real treat.


  1. Oh have a blast in Vegas! I will be heading there in November for the RnR Vegas marathon! Isn't it funny that So many work related conferences take place in Vegas? How on earth does that become productive? Have fun!

    1. My only guess would be to entice people to go to the meeting in the first place but Vegas is crazy! The stuff I've seen... LOL And good luck with RnR Vegas. That sure sounds fun

  2. Oh I'm so jealous!!! Have fun Frank and don't get into TOO much trouble! ;-)

    1. I'll try Mindy but I can't make any guarantees...

  3. Excellent! Have a great time. I've only been there once, and I'm dying to go back...possibly for the RnR Las Vegas Half, haha.

    1. Yeah, a race with a reputation for a party atmosphere. In Vegas. That's gonna make the Wine and Dine Half Marathon look like a nun convention. (I crack myself up)

  4. I hope you have so much fun! I love Vegas and I love downtown too! Can't wait to read all about it. Oh and be sure to get a little work done, but not too much! :)
