Back in Vegas for work, which can be a challenge for running. There are health clubs, but they're a bit pricey in some of the hotels. There are great places outside of the city, and some beautiful parks and preserves in the mountains, but they require a car. What's left?
At the Mandalay, I used to run a large block around to the West, over the highway, back East, and then back. Almost two miles, but pounding on cement, and dodging cars on a few streets.
This time, at the MGM, we had more cement (and less asphalt), but no cars to dodge. Going out of the lobby, a friend an I turned away from the strip each morning at 6:30, and then ran to the block, turning left at each city road, ending up back on the strip. It's all sidewalk cement, but not a bad run, and before 7am, few people are out, so you have the chance to jog without too many distractions of obstacles.
Nice to be outside in the cool air, with a friend, cruising along. I'm hoping to get a few more this weekend when I'm at Copper Mountain back in Colorado.
