Opposite (Transit to Polo Park). A little under 6km by the most direct route (Osborne, Broadway, Portage), a little over if I walk down Wellington Cres. I typically take the direct route though. The walking is easier and if I'm running a little late for some reason I can hop a bus part way.

I have a split that's typically an hour and a half (usually late pulling in on the first run) and it sure beats sitting around. Only doing it for 2 more weeks though, then on the an early evening straight run, which means my dogs will get walked more often!

I like the idea of 2 3.5km walks though. Easier at one, less time in the elements. Hope to move back closer to downtown this year or next. Half hour walk from work would be ideal.
