We had quite the Thanksgiving Day spread...all my favorites. But what counteracted the food was my 5 mile run when we woke up. I didn't think I would complain about the hills in Amarillo, but they were there and I didn't like them. The GF and her sister rode bikes along side me as I ran, so it wasn't so lonely in the Land of Nothing to Look at! Not sure if a run is in the cards for me today...not only have I had 3 doughnuts and leftover turkey, but it's rainy and windy and not my cup of tea...maybe I'll begin the Taper today (9 days and counting).
Vegas is almost upon us and although the main purpose of the trip is for my race, my mind is focused on gambling. I love to gamble and I'm pretty sure it'll take up the majority of my trip. Luckily, the lovely GF also loves to gamble! Here's what I think the percentage breakdown will look like:
Approximately 86 hours of trip Friday - Monday
24% Sleeping (inflated by extra pre-race hours)
3% Race Expo
7% Race (inflated by time to get to start line)
35% Gambling (inflated by time I will be gambling while sleeping, eating, and racing!)
As you can see, it's gonna be a fun fun trip! Maybe we'll come back with money in our pockets and smiles on our faces!
