This video shows me (Fred Hassen) running in my very first half marathon. It was a lot of fun and all the people around you that are running throughout the trek up and down the Las Vegas strip are truly inspiring and keep you going. This would have been much harder if all the people and the crowd were not there. I believe there was something like 45000 people running in this at night for Krohn's and Colitis and people came from all over. There were young and old in the race and people with all sorts of costumes. They had 'live' bands playing throughout the race, and of course with it being called the 'Rock and Roll' marathon that makes sense. They had people running the full marathon, which is 26.2 miles, and people running the half marathon which is 13.1. I only ran the half. I'm very happy that I took video a long the way so that I will always have memories of this event. I am 54 years old and just started training for this a few months ago. I had never run beyond 10 miles in my life.
