February 16 - 22, 2017 I got to go to Vegas with these fun gals. Barbara Hinman wanted to run the Saints and Sinners Half Marathon. She asked Kelly if she wanted to go. Kelly said yes, lucky for me, Kelly asked if I wanted to go, I said I can cheer anyone running a race in Vegas, no problem!
Then Kassie and Tiffy decided they wanted to go. Therefore, we 3 decided to do the Team Relay! I of course said I get the shortest leg! So Tiffy started, 6 miles for her, Kassie, 5 miles for her, and Me, 2.1 miles!
This is before the race started! A rainy day at Lake Mead, NV, but warm enough, I liked the desert landscape! Beats snow at the moment. Cara works for Kelly and she wanted to come too!
From Left to Right: Dixie, Barb, Cara, Kelly, Tiffy, Kassie!
Who was the Saint and who the Sinner?
This is one of my favorite pictures! Kassie's Selfie!
Document for posterity that we were truly in Vegas to run a half marathon! It was Barbs idea and she was the one who trained the least! Funny! I didn't train, as it is cold in Canada, but I can say I ran the full distance of my part of the relay!
Evidence that I was in the race! So this race was my 5th, I've done three 5km races, 2 in Polson, MT, 1 in Kalispell MT, 1 Spartan race in Calgary, and this, a Team Relay at Lake Mead, NV! It's fun to get the little goodies, for this race we got a nice black Saint and Sinners T'shirt and a little backpack!
Tiffany coming in after completing her part of the Relay! Kassie and I stood in the rain waiting for her to come in! Really too bad we weren't getting a tan while waiting! (but we weren't too hot!)
Kelly coming in the first part of her race, Barb is not far behind!
Cara coming into the 3rd and final 2.1 miles of the race! Her face tells it all! "Why did I say I'd do this???"
Kassie completing her part of the relay! She was just getting going, and felt like she could go for miles! Oh the joy of Youth!
Yup I ran the full distance of my part of the race! (a bit painful to walk for the next few day though!)
That's our team time: 2hrs 23min 47 sec!
I do believe our team name was the TDK's!
Oh notice I choose the Saint side to finish! Ummm!
The TDK's on the podium with our medals!
Lake Mead in the background! It was a nice place to be!
Cara finished her half marathon 13.1 miles in 2hrs 26min 31sec!
Way to go Cara!
Kelly completing her 13.1 Miles!
Way to go Kelly!
Barb, you did it!
Barb's time! Right on!
The Half Marathoners! Yeah!!
All of us! It was a good time!
President's Day in the USA! We drove to Red Rock Canyon, got in free and enjoyed ourselves. We would have hiked around if it was warmer, but we just enjoyed a few pit stops and the view from the car!
Just had to put in Barb's photo bomb, as it was painful for her to walk! Actually, the 3 older of us were rather tender in our walking for a day or two!
We went to Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson One! It was great! We also saw a Donny and Marie show, which was great too, but I have no pictures. We were lucky at Donny and Marie, the usher ended up getting us a table closer and that made the show even better! They were funny, much like I remember growing up!
I had to put this in as Tiffany got engaged on this trip! She stayed a week longer to rock climb with Devon, and gang. On the way home, on 25 Feb 2017 Devon proposed at the Provo Temple! I do believe the big day is 25 May 2017! Congrats you two!
