Las Vegas

We are leaving to go to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving after work today to spend some time with the Burnstein side of the family. It's supposed to be kind of chilly (low 60s) all weekend. I have brought running gear for colder weather and there is a 24 Hour Fitness about 2 miles from our hotel. I really hope that I stay with my exercise routine and go running this weekend. I think that running the strip will be nice.

I'm planning on heading out to the outlet malls on Black Friday and pick up some stuff for the holidays. I found out that the 2 outlet malls in Vegas are opening at midnight and staying open until 10pm. What a day for those workers.

I hope that I get everything done.

Hunting Weekend

We arrived in Almont, CO on Friday night (late). I told myself that I was going to recommit to running since I haven't done much since completing the Denver Marathon.

Unfortunately, I only ran on Saturday morning for 45 minutes and we were there through Monday morning. I did do some hiking with my MIL on Saturday and Sunday afternoon which was nice. It was a lot more than we did while the boys were hunting last year.

I packed my workout clothes in my Trailblazer so that I could go straight to the gym after work. Let's see if that's what I do.

Wish me luck.

The next paragraph is pretty gross. I warned you!!

Last year during hunting season I wouldn't even take a good look at the animals, but I was proud of myself this year; I took pictures of Brian and his dad skinning the animals. These are the grossest pics that I have ever taken. If you need any picutres for next year's halloween, let me know and I will send them to you.
