I think running in Vegas is probably the best thing I have done training wise ever.  It was about 5 degrees cooler this morning than it has been, but still 85 which hopefully is more than anything I will need to deal with in St. George.  I felt pretty good this morning, never really pushed hard but tried to keep a nice steady pace. 

Did my normal 4 loops and then 1 more mile into the loop turned around and went back for an even 12.  Not because I was afraid of an extra 1/2 mile but because I hate the last mile of my loop, it's hot, uphill and has the highest number of homeless people to jump over.

12 miles in 1:21:46  6:49 avg pace.

Nike LunarGlide 3 Miles: 12.00

nice miles this morning, and way to put a positive spin on running in the hot vegas temps. it's definitely good conditioning for you to prepare for the heat at SGM.

jumping over people while running sounds like fun...

Jumping over people is fun for a while but gets old.

Nice job on your run this morning too, good luck not breaking.

I would comment on your blog, but I'm supporting a conference and every time a piece of hardware goes down I get an e-mail alert which is very stressful, so the shlew of e-mails I get from commenting on your blog would just put me over the edge :)
