There is a point in your life when you can’t go to Vegas for the parties and drinking anymore.Vegas in your late-30s is a lot different than your 20s.

I had this overwhelming urge to see a show and take a nap.  Not the way I remembered it when I went in my 20s.

This time we went for the Rock and Roll Marathon.  My husband was running the half marathon and I was going to cheer him on — and to get the #!@$ out of Lancaster. We flew in on Friday night and had an amazing view out of our window.

We stayed at the  Paris hotel.  It was gorgeous!  The view from our room was awesome.  Bob spent a lot of time looking out the window…

I was looking at the Eiffel Tower from bed. I was exhausted.

The next morning we got up bright and early to hit the town!  It was 5:30 a.m. (because we were on Eastern time) so all we saw were the people coming out of the clubs.

You know you’re old in Vegas when you say out loud, “What are these kids thinking?

Then I caught myself. Hmm. Did I just say that?

We ended up grabbing a coffee and exploring some hotels that were within walking distance.

Later in the day we decided to call up a local friend to get lunch.  It is ALWAYS good to know a local.  I wanted to go off strip so we went to a small restaurant. I can’t tell you where it was, but the food was really good.

Then we got a quick driving tour of Vegas.  Loved it.

We finished the evening with a night out together and an evening show at New York, New York called Zumanity.  It was awesome!

The next day was race day and we were tired. I think  the jet lag was finally hitting me.  All I wanted to do was sleep.

Bob wanted to eat.

So off he went to a all you can eat buffet with our Vegas friend.  I had some alone time to wander around the hotel and get some breakfast.  It was a croissant filled with sausage. Ugh … not the best. But the people watching was great!

I love alone time on vacation.

Around 3, we met up with my cousin and his wife.  They were running and headed to the start line.

What else could we do while waiting?

We had an awesome time.  If we go back, we need to take a large group of friends with us.

Anyone want to come?

    There are so many ways to know you are getting older and I think you found the biggest one in Vegas! At +50 though I remember +30 as a golden time of huge vigor so make the most of it!!! Reply
