I found a great place to stay in Vegas, the Marriott Chateau.  It's technically a Marriott Vacation Club but you can rent rooms like a normal hotel.  Easy access to the Airport, no stinky casino and a really great gym with all LifeFitness equipment.  My new go to place to stay while on business in Vegas.

Set out to run 10 this morning but my legs were too soar. 8 miles a day was tough but it feels so good to be able to do it again. I think I'll max out at 8 per day for a while and work on getting speed up.

Embarrising admission here but I joined a neighborhood weightloss pool at the start of the year.  Because yes, I got fat over the past 4 years.  Funny enough this challange seems to have done the trick to get my butt back in gear, so far I'm down 18lbs since January 2nd and am in first place in the neighborhood pool :).  I just hope I can keep it up, I really want to be in as good of shape as I was 4 years ago.  My goal for the year is to qualify for 2018 Boston.

my legs were pretty sore today so after 1 mile I gave up and went back to the elliptical.

nice little morning run at the cabin, so amazing up here looking down over the inversion in Heber.  It was 15 degrees which scared me at first but is actually quite nice if there is no wind like there always is at home.

I was all excited to come to Sanoma California envisioning myself running through vinards on nice little dirt trails.  Nope, it's not like that, not my favorite town by any means.

Treadmill run in the stuff hotel gym.
