Best Alternative to the Hotel Treadmill: Westin Hotels Guided Running Tours
Many runners will tell you that one of the best things about the sport is the fact that it's free. Thankfully, someone at Westin Hotels seems to agree; the company's hotels in 30 cities employ a "running concierge" who leads guests on three-mile runs three mornings a week, free of charge. Now there's no excuse not to break free from the hotel treadmill.
