Distance: 3 km
Time: 23 minutes

This was my first run of the trip, and going from Vancouver runs at sea-level, to a hilly run in Quito at almost 3000 metres above sea level meant this was quite a short run.  The historic centre of Quito was unfortunately lacking in a lot of green area, but I tried to navigate my way to a couple of parks.  It was just long enough for my lungs to start hurting, and to make me realize I wasn’t acclimatized.  It was still nice to get out in the sun.
