As a byproduct of my role, I find myself in cool cities for very short periods of time. Case in point: I just spent 24 hours in Guangzhou, a megacity that’s the third biggest in China (sidenote: I’ve now seen the top three…woot). This sucks, but I realised a new resolution that I’m going to try and keep.
No matter how short a time I’m in a place, I am going to try and run in that place: get outside, exercise and look around. Last night, I ran into the city at 10pm, after a huge dinner. The run wasn’t my best, but at least I got a taste of the city…electric, humid, leafy and exciting all at once.
So there you go: stretch your legs and see a little.
