Vantage points

Training continues as the miles pile up, first race of the year in a month, then my 30K in six weeks.

Last week was a tough one to get the miles in. Here's a view of Montreal's downtown from my work office, the tallest skyscraper in the city (1000 de La Gauchetière). You can see the top of Mont-Royal where the lookout perches over the city. It's a 2.5K run from my hotel to the lookout, a nice little trek up streets and a bunch of switchbacks, followed by a dozen flights of steps.

And here's the view from the top, back toward downtown buildings, my office building is easy to spot by the pointed top.
