The Big Smoke 6K
4:30 AM, can't sleep: time to run. You know you may have a running problem, if when you go somewhere overnight, the first thing you pack is your running gear. In fact - you definitely have a problem, if you could have just gotten away with tucking an extra shirt and some clean underwear in your briefcase; but instead end up bringing a suitcase because of all your gear.

The 'big smoke' was calm and quiet at 4:30. The only sound was my Garmin beeping the occasional complaint when it lost the satellite signal. I honestly expected to meet up with other runners, but did not - I was probably on an obscure route. "Why would you run down Queen Street?" - Dunno, it was just there.
