Sin City. The entertainment capital of the world. Las Vegas goes by many names, but one thing is certain: this place grabs our attention with both its distinctive brand of glamour – extravagant-yet-chic hotels like the Wynn and the Mandalay, nightclubs like Hakkasan and XS – and its sheer improbability, the fact that this monument of excess could spring up in the middle of a desert. One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, the city attracts 40 million visitors each year, Las Vegas is no longer a place to play the tables and catch a Celine Dion show – its's now a mecca for trade conventions, shopping and fine dining. These days, Las Vegas is for both the sinners and the saints. If there was ever a place to feel like a VIP, it's Vegas. We're talking the old-school, Deano-and-Frank kind of treatment, where extravagance is a God-given right. Get out there.
When you refuse to be held down by convention, even the ground starts to feel like air. Really enjoyed racing in the 106th annual Bay to Breakers in San Francisco to raise a substantial amount for Bay Area charities. Clocked in the 7.5 miler in 56 minutes. There is no finish line to life when you stop wasting time in front of a TV screen. Keep on hammering the quadriceps. Respect the mettle. Persist to the level where your boredom gets bored, your tiredness gets tired and your delusions get deluded. Next race is the Big Sur Half Marathon.
