This is the final post of the One Day One World Project. It’s been an interesting 16 weeks for me and I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey with me.
Helen and I discussed numerous things we thought would be fun for this final timeframe, but in the end, this week got away from me with other commitments taking priority.
Instead of Helen joining me for today’s outing, Gilles was with me as we headed out to pick up our race packages for Sunday’s Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon. Both of us will be doing this race as a training run for our target race in Philadelphia at the end of November.
An outing with Gilles is very different than one with Helen. First of all we missed our exit because Gilles was “certain” we needed to exit later than we should have. Then we drove several kilometers out of our way while he was deciding on the best place to turn around. I couldn’t help but notice that I wouldn’t have felt that growing impatience if Helen had been driving. Is it just me, or are we harder on our spouses than we are with others?
When we finally arrived at the race Expo around 11:30, the crowd was thick and line ups were long. By noon I was finally armed with my race packet containing my timing chip and bib number.
This was my world today between 11 am and noon. Thank you for travelling with me on this journey of One Day One World. For more on the final hour of this project, visit Northwest Frame of Mind.
