Signed up for Philadelphia RnR last. Never done one of their events. Pretty spendy, but the timing is good and I can go see Megan.

Decided to rent a car in Vegas and do a loop of Scenic Drive in Red Rock Canyon, probably Thursday (on foot that is, not in the rental car).

AM: 231 out and back - 19 miles, averaged 7:28 w/ a few MP miles coming back down the hills. Threw in some faster miles at 14 & 15 (6:32; 6:18) then ran home. Guess there was another MP in there at 17 (7:12), but it didn't feel like it. I was pretty tired at that point and didn't have much sense of pace.

A gel would have helped, but I'm not taking any until my final, big workout. I do remember sleep-eating a banana at 2 or so this morning.

North side - 5 miles, averaged 9:13. 9-minute guy must have been throwing down some 7s

After a crappy day yesterday (great running day though), I'm headed to Vegas, where I never thought I would go.

Vegas Strip and wandering -10 miles, averaged 7:45 w/ 2-mile tempo (6:25, 6:38)

Vegas is exactly as I expected: intriguing and depressing.

No run yet today after a late night with some friends. Got a good rocky/bouldery hike in yesterday. Topography is very different than New England. Managed to get up and registered for Beach to Beacon. Registration filled in 4:58 (a pace time that took 14th overall last year).

PM: 7 miles in 49:37. w/ 3 @ 6:30 and @ 2 @ 7:00

Everything stays in Vegas except the calories :) oh well.
