Often in my travels, the only time I get a chance to see a city is to go on a morning run. So this morning I ran from my hotel to the famous Galata Bridge and back. The total was over 8 miles. The last mile and a half is a ridiculous incline, so some of this run became a brisk walk. But it was a great way to start the day, allowing me to see Istanbul as it was waking up.
