Run run run

"We all get our hearts broken sometime. Whenever I do, I go jogging. The body loses water when you jog. So I don't cry as easily. I can't be crying."

-Chungking Express (1994)

{I'm in love with this movie I first saw in film class, and that movie gave me my first taste of Asia}

I'm lucky enough to live right across the street from the only mountain in Montreal, and every single morning my friend and I out on our sneakers and go for a run. It's been so much fun. The weather is getting warmer, and the city view from the top is amazing. So much better than the gym, the trails can be a little difficult and steep, and working out with a friend is always motivating. How do you stay in shape?

This is so nice to read as I'm also from Montreal but I live in England at the moment... I miss Canada so much!

Too bad I don't have you or your friend around! You sound like you would be excellent motivators for me!

That quote is so true! Whenever I've gone through a breakup I always recommit myself to the gym! I usually work out there, either on the elliptical trainer or rowing machine. I wish I could go out and run, but my knees are really weak and hurt when I run. But about once a week I do a four-mile walk in the park.
(Btw, not sure if you're also going through a break-up, but if so, keep running and feel better!)

I live near the hills, and it is my favorite way to stay fit.

Lovely photos! Makes me wish it was daytime now so I could go for a run.
