As our 52km journey goes on, our spirits were raised when we began spotting a familiar friend.
But this friend is farther than we think.
This friend is distant, a very tall friend.
The CN tower.
We began assuming we'd arrive at Toronto sooner than we thought.
We were wrong. Now we realize that our good friend the CN tower, is keeping his distance from us.
We're tired, hungry for a full meal, and we're getting more and more anxious to arrive and greet out old buddy.
Our swimmer is keeping a steady pace and is stopping regularly to eat and drink.
But you can see it in his eyes that the only thing keeping his body moving is his determination and will.
We're almost there old friend, almost there.
