LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Forget a 5K, one woman is challenging herself to run 1K.
1,000 miles, that is.
Rose McCarty was in the Las Vegas area over the weekend for RunRoseRun, a city tour across the U.S. to raise support, donations, and awareness for at-risk youth.
McCarty says she plans to visit 15 cities and run an average 100 miles per week for a total of 1,000 miles over the course of two months.
So far, McCarty has clocked more than 350 miles.
She started in San Antonio and now she's leaving Las Vegas for San Diego to run along the coast.
