Any empty parking lot with decent pavement would do. If you haven't done anything like this before, you don't need a big space to start running simple drills such as figure 8's. As simple as they sound, 8's are quite addictive especially once you are trying to improve your own time or your friend's.
My latest run:
10 foot start/end box, 10 feet between box and first "cone", 40 feet between "cones".
41 second for 5 laps.
Beat that, and you are on your way to addiction
