Change of Plans

Combining a recovery week and marathon fever can be a bad combination sometimes.  The urge to run races with lots of free time on my hands – yikes! 

I mentioned in my plans that I was going to run CIM again unless something else came up.  Well that something did. 

I got word of some exciting new plans for a running blogger conference from SkinnyRunner and I had to think twice on my original plans to run CIM again.  I sent an email out to a few of the ladies who were also considering CIM to see what their thoughts were and a few short minutes and 5606803 emails later, the plans had been made.  It was kind of intense. 


Watch out Vegas – running bloggers are coming!

I have never really wanted to run this race, but how can I not this year?  RUNNING BLOGGER CONFERENCE?!  Yes please.  Plus it keeps me away from CIM for a year, which was one of my 2011 goals anyways, and it will just be a ton of fun.  Running a marathon at night will be an entirely new experience!

So who else is going to be there?! 

If you are interested at all in attending email just to say you are interested.  It will help her with the planning – the more that are interested the better it will be!

Hope to see you there!!

    I want to run the night marathon so bad…. but it is one of our busiest times at work….. still trying to see if there is a way to finagle it!

    I ran Vegas last year (when it was still a normal morning race), and I had lots of fun. Running up and down the Strip is freaking awesome. And the best part… afterparty at the XS with open bar!!!

    I’m already signed up, so a running blog conference is just a super awesome added bonus!

    Dying to run this one, but I don’t think i can hack it with expenses and the fact that it’s not a time I can take off work :(

  12. Michelle May 9, 2011 at 12:27 pm #

    Woot! I will be there for the half. Can’t wait!

    Oh man, are you serious? I was sooo tempted by this and now it’s even better with the conference! I don’t think I can make it happen since we’re going to Philly in November, but sooo cool!

  14. Kelly May 9, 2011 at 2:30 pm #

    ooh hmm that does sound interesting! I am going to do some researching… :)

    My Vegas based aunt and uncle are already planning to run the 1/2, so if there’s a race I’m traveling to, it’s going to be that one! Here’s hoping I join you in December!

    I really wanted to do this (come to the blogger conference) but I’m running Philadelphia 2 weeks before and I live on the East coast :(

    I like Pfitz’s “in between” plans too. Hope it serves you well this time around! I can’t wait to run SF one day.
