RnR Las Vegas in pictures

On last post on the Rock n Roll Las Vegas half  marathon. And this one will require very little reading. I promise :)

I don't normally order race photos. I can't usually justify the cost, especially since my Mom is usually at my races with me and acts as my own personal photographer. But my Mom wasn't in Las Vegas with me. So no photos. When I got the e-mail from the RnR Las Vegas folks telling me race photos were up, I kind of cringed. Who knew what they were going to look like.

I was pleasantly surprised though. They turned out pretty well. So I decided to splurge. It's not often that I end up with good race photos. Add to it that these are good race photos of me running a half marathon in Las Vegas. Sold. So have a look.
Pretty early in the race. Just after the starting gun went off. Still feeling good obviously.
 Around Mile 2, just passing the Eiffel Tower outside of Paris.
Somewhere in the middle of the race, probably around Mile 6 or 7 since I've taken the arm warmers off.
Heading down the home stretch. The final half mile and so ready for the race to be done. But still have enough energy to give the photographer a thumbs up, because even though my legs revolted I did have a good time.
 Crossing the finish line. Done!
 You can't run a half marathon in Las Vegas without getting the finisher's photo with a Vegas showgirl. Should have stood in line for the picture with the showgirl decked out in red though.
