Running to Vegas

I'm back from the Las Vegas Ragnar Relay. It was a lot of fun. I don't think I've laughed that hard in a very long time.

It made me realize a few things.

First, when the hotel clerk at the Virgin River asks if it's okay to stay in a Pet Friendly room, say no.

Second, don't be afraid to be foolish.

Make mistakes.

Don't worry about what people think.

Third, if you can't run like a track star,
run anyway.

You never know what tomorrow might bring
so don't waste the chance to stretch your legs.

Also, to the family of the runner who was killed this weekend by the hit and run driver, you are in my prayers.

We were just a little ahead so we didn't see the accident but we heard the sirens. The race changed for us after that point. He was on the shoulder of the road when he was struck. It could have been any one of us. Heart breaking for all of us.

Looks like you guys had a blast! I'm so proud of you all! What a great accomplishment you have achieved! You are truly amazing! Oh, and I'm very glad I wasn't there...

Melinda said...

Yay! Sounds awesome. Unlike Kim, I'm wishing I had been there....

Not the pet hair thing, though. Disgusting!

Love you!

I LOVE this post! Excellent! You go girl!

I agree with Melinda, the pet hair is gross.

It looks like you had a great time. That's awful about the hit-and-run. My heart goes out to their family too.

I won't lie--that pet hair thing makes me want to barf a little.

Congratulations Kristi! Great life advice, there ;)

So sad to hear about the runner who lost his life. What a tragedy.
