Half-Marathon #6

This post has no pictures.

This past weekend Stevie and I went to Las Vegas! We were running in the 2nd annual Rock n' Roll Las Vegas Half-Marathon for the 2nd year!

This was the first weekend we were BOTH away from Shyla, at the same time. I had been away twice (Ragnar and CIMI) and Stevie had been away a few more times than that (Vegas, Vegas, work, Vegas, etc.) But this was the first time we were both away which meant Shyla needed to spend the weekend with my parents for the first time.

I was nervous about this for 2 reasons:
1) I knew I would miss her terribly
2) For the past 18 or so months Shyla has not slept through the night

Anyway, Vegas was fun. We went with our friend Cesar and his girlfriend. We stayed at Planet Hollywood. We ran in the race. We finished the race. Stevie finished in 1:58 and I in 2:44. We ate a lot of good food. I took a lot of naps. It was beautiful.

Shyla......Shyla, of course, slept all night. Like clockwork she fell asleep at 7, stayed asleep until 6, and napped without a fight.


So my line-up of half-marathons:
2006 Tucson
2009 Tucson
2009 Vegas
2010 San Diego
2010 Mt Lemmon
2010 Vegas

Shyla is a gem! We had such a great time with her last weekend...and the sleeping part was amazing too..hopefully she will keep it up and give Mommy and Daddy an early Christmas present!

Stephanie said...

Congrats on finishing the 1/2 marathon! That's a super accomplishment.

Do you and your sister ever run together?

Chelsea said...

You know mom and dad put a little booze in her sippy before bed, right?


Very impressive lineup sister!

Yay on number 6!! And I'm just laughing out loud about Shyla's sleeping...she is such a wild woman and I guess she just likes to make sure you and Daddy-O have more of an adventure with her than anyone else!
