While celebrating with my friends in Las Vegas for my upcoming wedding, I made time to get in a “long” run, and I used that term long a bit loosely. My schedule called for 10 miles today, but with a number of things that wanted to get done this morning, I had to shorten the run to a little under 8 miles today. It was a great run to have this morning in Las Vegas on the famous Las Vegas Strip. While running out there this morning I came across a number of morning runners going in many different ways and directions around the famous area. I was able to run about 3 miles or so with a couple of runners. While running the strip, I stopped for a short moment about 2 miles into the run to take a photo in front of the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, as seen in the photo. Tomorrow will be a cross train and some strength training. I hope all of you are getting ready for some of your upcoming races as I am excited to run my first run of the 2011 season in about 1 month.
