My friends Kim and Le Ann and I have been planning a girls trip for a while now, and we’ve finally nailed down a date for Vegas. Since the planning started, we’ve talked about flying somewhere to see Air Supply and other such awesomeness, but we finally chose a weekend based on an actual responsible adult thing (but God I hope Air Supply is playing there while we’re there)….wait for it: we are going to Vegas for the Biggest Loser 5k. How cool is that? Talk about motivation to get my ass going. I’m way stoked! I’m stoked to see my girls, I’m stoked ‘cause it’s Vegas Baby, but I’m equally stoked to have a goal like that. Whenever I’ve been involved in Vegas trips in the past, we’ve long been talking about our alcohol plans and other such shenanigans at this point of the planning. I love that stuff, but it’s fun to have something so rewarding as the main reason for this trip. Now, my friends won’t have much if any training to do (L.P.-Kim had already run 4 miles today when I talked to her), so I need to step up my game. Okay, you’ve got me. I’ve got to actually get in the game, and start moving. The timing for all of this is pretty good, too. A couple of nights ago my friend Caity text me a video of me ziplining on Fremont street in Vegas. I barely recognize that girl. Well, that chick is showing up in Vegas. And because she’s with a different set of friends than I’ve gone with a couple of times in the past, this time probably won’t mean scaling a fence at 2 A.M. to skinny dip in the outdoor hot tub of the hotel with my friends. But it’s Vegas, you can never rule anything out. Plus, I never regret that crazy stuff. Always fun. Anyway, I’m feeling inspired, so I thought I’d write.
Hope you’re having a fun and inspired day.
