A Dance with Monkeys

    I'm going to be at Madalay Bay this week for a couple of days. Any advice about where to run? Thanks T


    Needs more cowbell!

      No, but backroadrunner is going to be there on Weds (for 3 nights, I think), too...you should try to run with her! Big grin k

        COOL! BRR, where will you be?

          Who, me? Still freezin' my butt off here in MI. Damn, I hope we have an early Spring. Eryn said the forecast in LV is in the low 60s each day...that would be heavenly for running! Big grin k

            I've run up and down the strip early in the morning (the sidewalks are very wide, but you will have to run up and down stairs at some of the intersections). Usually there are a few people still out from the night before that are both drunk and amazed that you are running. I've also run from MGM to the airport and then around the airport. That's a terrible run (flat though). There is also a running club out there that will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to their runs. i don't remember their URL, but if you search for Las Vegas running clubs you should find it. Their wednesday run leaves from the Nike Store in Caeser's Palace.

            Bring it on.

                Thanks! Interestingly, my grandfather's brothers opened Caesar's Palace back in the day. One of them, Jay Sarno, has his name on the road in front of the hotel.

                  Bring it on.

                    Trent: What 'couple of days'? I live in LV, and there are a lot of places to run other than the strip, if you can get off the strip. A couple of websites to try: www.lvtc.org www.lasvegasrunningteam.com If it includes next Saturday, there are a number of us doing 18. If you (actually, anyone) wants some info on running in LV (offstrip), you can contact me at summerlinrunner@gmail.com

                      Thanks again. I will be getting in Tuesday, leaving Thursday. I will probably be looking for early morning runs Weds and Thurs. I probably will NOT have transportation, other than a pair of Saucony shoes.
                        oh my god how freaky! I was just coming on to post my own topic saying that I'm coming to Vegas in a couple of weeks (2/3 to 2/9) and was wondering if anyone has any route suggestions (jet lag permitting of course) Shocked thanks for helping me out Big grin

                          Run the Strip. It's a blast. If you set out early enough, you won't have to fight for space along the sidewalks. I run the Strip every time I go out there. It's great.

                              10 miles on the Vegas Strip. From Mandalay Bay up past Stratosphere and back. on asphalt, concrete, granite, wood plank, sand, brick, aggregate, stairs. Sunny, low low humidity, 45 degrees, not a cloud. 2000 feet above sea level. Steady 8:45 pace. Thanks folks for the advice!!
                                Trent, I'm sorry I didn't get to see this until too late, we could have run the strip together. I just made it back home from Vegas a few minutes ago. We stayed at Paris from Wed until this morning. I ran 2 mornings on the strip at about 5-6am. It was fantastic...not crowded at all. The 2nd morning, I hit construction twice where they had the sidewalks closed too & had to do a few loops, but it was fun anyways. The stairs gave me a bit of a workout, since I hate running hills even, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (apparently all the squats I've been doing at the gym are helping!). I probably ran past you if you were running in the early a.m.!!
