    I'm waiting at my gate this beautiful Memphis morning to hop to Atlanta and then cruise to Vegas for a trip with a few buddies. A couple of months ago one of my guys suggested a golf trip to which I suggested going to Vegas for said golf trip and quickly 5 people were on board.

    For some reason I like to run for shiny medals so I planned the trip around the half marathon there. Plan was football watching Saturday and Sunday coupled with alcohol and gambling. Dinner at Capital grille tonight and a pre race carb load at Mon ami Gabi tomorrow for breakfast.

    My bankroll:

    A pretty good amount of change, a birthday check from grandma and 3 Target gift cards. I think they're each worth $5 but I'm hoping one might be $10 and am planning on using them as bartering tools.

    About to board...see you in Vegas!

    Grabbed my car rental then off to the race expo to pick up my race gear. A lot of fit people in that place. I felt quite inadequate:

    No shit. I bet So. Fla and was greatly pleased with the ending but didn't expect it. That was flagrant pass interference at the end. I'm usually on the other side of those calls.

    Did you run the 10K, half or full this year? Weather was warmer than in past years.
