Vegas & Heartburn

I have this case of heartburn today and it really sucks. I get a random spout of heartburn like once a year for no apparent reason. I haven't eaten anything different and have no idea why this happens but it feel like someone is gutting me from the inside. Yum.
Hubby and I went on a trip to Vegas and it was great. Really great. We realized this was our first vacation alone since we got married. Every vacation involved being with either family or friend. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just nice to be alone.
We were there for 5 days. A bit too long for Vegas but what the heck...right? Typical day involved me waking up at 6:00am because I just couldn't sleep anymore. I went to workout in the dinky workout room. We went and ate an overpriced breakfast (walking about 3 miles to find what sounded good), got sucked into a casino which took my money because I get all hyped up over the flashing lights on the slots, then go shopping at stores that I would have to take a second mortgage on my house to buy anything at. By then it's somehow like 4:00 and we go take a break, go back to the casino and do something fun in the evening. I guess it sounds boring now that I write it down, but it wasn't at all. I swear we walked 10 miles a day. There were 2 big events I particularly enjoyed.
1) Dinner and Emeril's Delmonico Steakhouse. Nothing like having 5 servers per table with steak that melts in your mouth like butter. O my gosh...I recommend that place. It's not cheap, but it's worth the splurge.
2) Hiking at Valley of Fire National Park. We rented a car for the day and went hiking. It was very cool.
Next time we hope to do more of the hiking and a little less of the gambling. It was a good time. Now I'm back 10 times more tired then when I left....and with heartburn. O well.

As far as running goes, it has been minimal, but I work out quite a bit more when I'm not running so that usually ends up being a good thing. I finally got the the treadmill and ran 5 pain free miles yesterday which is a great start. I'm just taking my good old time so I'm not back at square one cursing the world out with my foot in a bucket. Ahhh...the joys.
It looks like the racing team on one is on the outs...boooo. I can't blame the person who is running it though. I can't believe they were able to keep it running (no pun intended) for so long with how busy there life is. The upside is I can run for Vertical Runner and wear their stuff (if they let me).
Did I mention the cupcake shop right by Vertical Runner??? Mmmmmm. I'm sure that would help this heartburn.
