Las Vegas Marathon Dec 2nd
Las Vegas is such an exciting place to be? Arrived Thursday night, Friday rained all day! Training Saturday getting ready for the race, started 6.00am weather was ok; the strip is closed for the race which is awesome. I was with a Canadian for 8 miles then on my own for the next 18 miles. 1st place, Las Vegas marathon.

Great weather for training, but rained at some point every day! The rain was the heaviest that I have ever raced in, flat tyre at 18 miles. Took a while to change with it being so wet, ended up in 5th place…
