And over at Phantom Observer, Blogging Tory Vic Wong puts down his keyboard, straps on his Kevlar-reinforced Reeboks, dons something red and courageously sallies forth from his parents' basement to defend and support the honour of Canada's fighting men and women -- by walking/running 5 km, knowing that, at any minute, deadly insurgent gunfire might erupt in Kabul, a mere several thousand kilometres away.
And don't think that 5 km was a cakewalk, either:
A good distance to cover on foot, I have to admit. A bit muggy out, and the skies were pretty nice for the whole event.
I mean, the distance or the humidity alone would be enough to give one pause, but the two of them combined? Well, that Vic is quite the trooper, wouldn't you say?
Join us next time when Vic, having recovered fully from his ordeal, does it all again since, if there's one thing the troops can't get enough of, it's pictures of lots of people wearing red, and the new photos will be, like, totally different from the old ones.
