This week’s photo comes to you live from Las Vegas. Elvis lives and has multiplied. Last Sunday I ran in the Las Vegas Half Marathon. Everywhere I looked there was an Elvis from young to old with everyshape size and outfit covered.
For more photos check out my Flickr sets. For more about the race check out posts about the weekend which even included an Elvis Pasta Dinner the night before the race. I had so much fun I might just have to return next year and do the full marathon.

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep.
Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003.
Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon.
Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
