    Quick update, made it to St. George today, a mere 110 miles to drive Wednesday morning. Hope to get in early enough to play in the daily tournament at Harrah's and sure hope I can check into the Palms early, don't have any status with them and not even sure how i got a 2 night comp but no complaints here. Rooms supposed to be remodeled and hope the gaming area is all finished with its construction too.

    Any other runners here on the board? I will be volunteering at the registration desk on Thursday and also then working the finish line of half and full on Sunday, say hi if you see me! :licklips: will be posting pics for sure, just cool to see the strip closed down for this event. Also just for grins, going to walk the 5k on Saturday and see if this birthday boy, shhhhhhh 61, can still move some.

    Checked into Palms, remodeled room in Ivory Tower, works for me. Bellhop told me new policy is no ice chests allowed but then he took it and said it was for ‘medical reasons’ New one on me

    Also having trouble posting pics directly in Tapatalk, keep getting error message ‘ post 1 pic at a time’ even though just clicking on one pic, any ideas?

    Weird, haven't gotten that error before. Maybe try quitting out of the app, or reinstalling it if it continues? Love the pics!

    Strange, reinstalled app and still get the same thing, oh well, back to transferring pics from phone to PC and posting.

    Nice hits!

    I was reading another report and they said they were having trouble posting photos. Maybe Tapatalk is experiencing issues?

    Sorry about delays in reporting, been quite busy. Helped out with the marathon registration on Thursday from 2-6pm and also moved from the Palms to Harrah's, pics from both later. Friday was a bit of chill day, went to High Tea at Bellagio with some friends, all doing various races this weekend, visited the expo center for race, got some nice goodies there. Then had dinner with my Brother and wife at the Peppermill. They just happen to be spending the month at Lake Mead, they are doing the retirement in RV thing, pretty fun to watch their exploits around the US and Canada.

    So last night get back to hotel room about 11pm, haven't given Harrah's any play for the day, figure I better do some, earn my comp a little bit. Played some video poker and voila.

    My first Royal Flush in quite awhile and my first playing on $1 machine. All I can say is that was one hell of a birthday present! LOL
