~ Thursday's sunset hike/run up Turtlehead Peak, elev. 6323 ft. Almost made it down by closing time!
~ Friday's (11/11/11) run on the Bootleg Canyon trails in Boulder City. Must have been the Vegas, good-intentions-out-the-window effect: not one ultrarunner did more than 20 miles. Indeed, this one turned out to be a more laid-back C4P in terms of mileage.
~ Seeing Barry Manilow (yes, Barry Manilow) at the Paris! Among others, he "sang" (??--more likely lip synced) Daybreak, I Write the Songs, This One's For You, Mandy, and Copacabana. Freaking awesome!
~ Mustaches. What happens in Vegas...
~ Saturday's loop in stunningly colorful Red Rock Canyon, 20'ish miles for the "long" folks.
~ Riding in Karen and Pat's Mustang convertible rental with the top down and the heat on full blast.
~ Soaking and drinking in the Tuscany's hot tub.
~ An Elvis sighting.
~ Bowling at Gold Coast Casino. This place was HUGE--70 lanes! At around 10 p.m. they turned off the big lights and turned on the black lights and the hip hop'in DJ. Cool.
~ Watching Chris B. and Allen get down. Those two can DANCE.
~ The Sunday 6 a.m. group run down the Strip, led by "Elvis." We even got a couple of drunks to run with us for a bit.
Fun times! After a hot tub brainstorming session, plans are already in the works for next year's event. Hmm... where will it be???
