Noted in Ottawa on Tuesday morning:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto headed out for a morning run together.

After leaving the Chateau Laurier, they crossed the provincial boundary from Ontario to Quebec across the Ottawa River on the Alexandra Bridge.

Trudeau spoke to Peña Nieto as they ran side by side along the wooden boards of the span’s footpath.

The prime minister wore black shorts and a Saskatchewan Jazz Festival T-shirt. Peña Nieto wore black shorts, a fluorescent green T-shirt and even brighter fluorescent green shoelaces. After crossing the bridge, they continued running through Gatineau, Que.

Peña Nieto is in Ottawa for an official state visit ahead of the Three Amigos summit.

Trudeau hosted a banquet for Peña Nieto on Monday night in Toronto, where the Prime Minister said discussions between the two leaders during the coming days would include the flow of people and goods.

The two men will be joined on Wednesday by U.S. President Barack Obama for the North American Leaders Summit in Ottawa, commonly known as the Three Amigos.
