I have said many times here how important it is to have a goal. Goals are great for keeping you on track, increasing motivation and a number of other reasons.
So I'm taking my own advice and gave myelf a goal to work toward: the Rock and Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon on December 4th. A few friends of mine are going to do it and we're going to make a weekend out of it. The race is great from what I've heard. It's run at night, so you're running along the strip in all its glitzy goodness at night. This will probably be my first big race since having my girls (though there's another one I have my eyes on...we'll see about that). I'm actually excited and feeling a little motivated. I hope it sticks around for a while!
Here's a video of the race! Get motivated!
