Broke the Sound Barrier
But it was a victory of sorts, of minor proportions, as I walked on and blazed a new trail as I make The Great Canadian Comeback. Two hours, 30 minutes after starting out I arrived home with rosy cheeks and a thirst for a hot cup of tea.
Personal Commentary as I reached a new turnaround point farther down the pathway:
GH: Well, first, let me thank my sponsors, Merrill Hiking Boots. I couldn't have done it without proper footwear. And second, I feel great, ready for the walk home.
PA: So, you've walked farther than ever before during your comeback. Can you tell us about future plans?
GH: Well, honestly, first thing on my mind is a proper important question. Is there a toilet near here? I gotta pee like a racehorse, as some like to say. Second, about plans, I don't see a marathon in my future but I do plan to walk through the winter and try to make each month a bit more challenging, you know what I mean?
PA: Don't know what you mean, really, but we've run outta time and you're getting fidgety. Toilets are open at the old Guy Lombardo museum on Wonderland.
GH: Yeah, yeah. See ya.
