Nice! I will run one of these someday (the Vegas strip running events). Always thought it would be fun. I haven't run a full in a very long time and a half I'm not really interested in any more either. But a 10K is just right to continue the fun like a functional human afterward.

I don't foresee too many people willing to go to Vegas that close to Thanksgiving.

Oh, is this the Strip run, and not the Hoover Dam run?

Thanksgiving is late this year. 28th. Plenty of time to defrost and brine the turkey imo

17th? That's a Sunday. I can get there by midnight the night before. (I'm busy during day on Saturday.)

8/25-30 for sure
9/3-5 most likely.

Interestingly, it costs about the same to fly first from Newark to Vegas to San Fran to Vegas to Newark as it does to fly first one way from Newark to San Fran....

So fun fact, Caesars will tier match with Mlife. If you have Mlife Gold status you can get Diamond with Caesars, which means no resort fees and free spa admission (except at Caesars Palace itself, where I think you pay $20 instead of $50.)


This is good news since Mlife seems to be gutting their program. All tiers just get 10% off rooms instead of varying discounts.

11/3 - 11/9

First two nights deciding between PHo (comp nights) or downtown - trying to decide if I want to gamble at Chandelier/Cromwell and get the premium cocktails, or downtown for them premium odds. Next 4 nights at Luxor against my will.
