>General Running>Running in Riyadh
I have a work trip to Riyadh and I'm about 4.5 weeks out from my half. I'll be there for two weekends which should be two of the longest runs of my training. I'm a male, so I understand I can get by with more than a female in that society, but does anyone have experience with that country or similar, as far as running outside, wearing shorts, etc? Could I substitute shorter higher intensity work on the treadmill? I'll have two and a half weeks after I get back before the race.
I wasn't a runner when I was in Saudi, and obviously I would have faced some additional challenges. But try contacting the Riyad Roadrunner's. http://www.riyadhroadrunners.com/
