The “+ More” = Red Rock Canyon
My trip to Las Vegas was wonderful. It felt like I was gone for a month and, as hoped, relaxed and stuffed myself stupid (the evidence: I gained 6 pounds in a week – ugh!). But I am here to share with you a little gem that can be found about 20 miles outside of Vegas called Red Rock Canyon. It was breathtaking. If you get a chance to go there for a little sightseeing or hiking, do it. It will be a welcomed break from the casino chaos. It is even the site of what I think would be a pretty spectacular half marathon.

If your friends tease you for doing something awesome IN JEANS, come see me. I will love you and support you in your jean-wearing awesomeness.
Last summer I hiked the highest peak in the lower 48 – in jeans. My friends made fun of me the whole way.
The hike takes two days. I did it all in the same pair of jeans. The first day we hiked up to about 11,000ft and stayed overnight. Day 2 we made the summit at 14,500ft and then hiked down. My jeans held up quite well compared to the “cool” synthetic pants everyone else was wearing ;)

Thanks to Ashley, my new Pittsburgh (yeah!) runner (woohoo!) Twitter friend who sent me this picture:
And to Tonya, Sew-N-Sew Runs blogger, for this picture taken at her gym in Akron, Ohio:
And, finally, a thanks to Jeremy, the genius behind the motivating, funny, uplifting, and even a bit philosophical CultFit, for today’s bonus picture. While it is questionable if those are actually jeans, the climbing pack is worthy of a post here:
