7 miles in the desert!
I slept in today. So I didn't make it out for my run until 11ish. I was up earlier but I had to go to Starbucks and get my Chai Tea Latte fix ... and I had a chocolate croissant.
My legs felt like they were made of concrete. It took quite sometime for them to limber up. The sun and the heat were very draining. It felt like Monday's third loop. I drank about one and a half litres of water during the run and was still parched. I can't blame it on alcohol because I haven't had much to drink. I thought that I was well hydrated.
The nice thing about running on The Strip is that the "Sales People" tend not to bother you. Yes, the ones that offer FREE shows and VIP club passes and on and on. I did have a "Mexican Flicker" woman stick her cards in my face. C'mon lady! I am not sure what their proper title is, but I do appreciate that they are doing their job. They get a lot of slack from the tourists. I would be upset if people started harassing me while I was working.
This trip has been relaxing. I haven't been out and about much... except for the running and one shopping excursion that lasted 45 minutes door to door (I was running late for a dinner and wanted a new pair of shoes to go with my outfit). The picture above is me lying in bed. That is how I am going to spend the rest of my afternoon. I have a banquet to go to at 6:30 so I will have to get dressed and do some ironing at some point!
I put $2 into a slot machine today.... I lost it all. Sorry Janet, it wasn't Betty Boop. Couldn't find any.
