1. Mall walking. It's not running, of course, but you can at least walk at a brisk pace.
2. Go up and down flights of stairs in your hotel.
3. Several of the larger churches in my part of the country have gyms that they will allow non-members to use, with proper arrangements. You might call some of the larger churches in the areas where you'll be and see if you can get permission to run in their gyms.
4. You can work up a pretty good sweat dragging your luggage up and down in airports between planes. Again, not running, but also not sitting.
5. Put a workout dvd on your iphone or ipod, then follow along in your hotel room. It might not be running, but it should keep your conditioning going.
6. Many hotels have free, or nearly free, workout-in-your-room videos that you can order on your room tv.
7. Ask the concierge at your hotel for ideas. He/she can probably come up with a bunch of them.
8. Check into gym memberships in national chains that have cooperating facilities in many larger cities. Then, you can just go to the local version of your home gym. Ditto for YMCA/YWCA.
9. The aforementioned scarf over the face is a good idea; also a ski mask.
10. Try to stay in hotels with at least a sorta gym that provides you with a treadmill/elliptical/spinning bike option.
11. Ask your business associates who live in the places to which you travel for ideas. Again, they should know of a lot of them.
