Vegas has been the location of so many important moments in my life and so I thought running 13.1 miles all over the city just seemed right. I can now boast that not only did I find the love of my life in Vegas and married him there several years later; I have also literally ran all over Vegas.

We started the race a mile past Mandalay Bay and ran all the way down to Fremont Street, around the surrounding neighborhoods and back, ending at the Mirage. What a rush it was to run down the strip with thousands of people cheering you on.
What made the race even more special was the fact that I ran in honor of my cousin Lydia who is affected by Crohn's disease. I am so proud to have been able to raise over $2900 to help find a cure for those with Crohn's & Colitis. I raised money and ran with Team Challenge. It was an outstanding experience and i highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to take on a big challenge!
