Rock and Roll Vegas 5K Race Report

Short Version:  Ran most of the race in a large parking lot and got to see Meb for a split second.

Long Version:
Realized I was going to be in town for this race weekend and wanted to experience "running the strip at night."  Apparently, it is one of the few times they will actually close down the strip so wanted to do it after seeing a bazillion ads in RunnersWorld.

Start was on the Vegas Festival Grounds across from the SLS Vegas Hotel. We parked at the Hilton and was running a little late... everything is farther in Vegas than you think.  We ran over to the start and got to our corral just in time.  There were a TON of people there!

Starts and finishes in the parking lot and then a strip that runs down Sammy Davis Jr.  Scott and I ran together and they had some bands and DJ's posted throughout the route.  Nothing really exciting about the race... except I did get to see Meb leading a fast pace group.  That split second was the highlight of the race.  This race felt like an add on to the bigger races of the weekend.  Nothing super exciting but always fun to do a race with Scott. Also, had to do for the Remix Challenge!

So many people
