As a walker I have never understood why people run, especially run in a marathon. It's just painful and from the expression on many of the runners' faces my opinion is justified. Also, is having a marathon runners number on your shirt a licence to publicly urinate and defecate. During this walk I was witness to a number of the male runners taking a leak in the bushes along the path. I even saw a guy run into the wetlands, drop his pants, squat and I am guessing lay a cable (can't be certain of this as I looked away immediately when the pants went down). What is wrong with these people? Ok, better get back to describing the aspects of the walk that didn't give me nightmares.
A highlight of the walk was the boardwalk around Point Dundas, just after Jeff Joseph Reserve. The boardwalk is right on the river, providing perfect river views, and lines some really impressive homes. I wasn’t really meant to have access to the boardwalk as there was a sign indicating a detour and a pulled down fence, which in hindsight was meant to be blocking the path. But I went on walking anyway. It wasn’t until further down the boardwalk that I meet with an intact fence blocking the path. Wish someone had pulled that one down as I had to climb over it. Hopefully the local government fix this up as the boardwalk was one of the best parts of the walk.
