We last visited Montreal in the mid to late 1990’s. A lot has changed since then – marriage; two kids; and the ability to “conquer” Mount Royal. Last weekend, we went back to Montreal and I couldn’t have enjoined our trip to Mount Royal more.
For those not familiar with Mount Royal, it provides sweeping views of the City but it is a hike/run/bike ride up. 17 – 20 years ago when we last went, we contemplated hiking it. Alas, it was not to be. While not having yet “achieved” the lofty goal of morbid obesity, I was still not in any shape to hike back then.
Now, years later, I was able to run up the hills to get to the top without even breathing heavy. Health is liberating in so many way.
