The Big Day
- Get plenty of sleep the night before your big event.
- Bring along an ID, sunscreen, sunglasses, some cash, and a credit card.
- Don't wear new sneakers. Stick with what's tried and true or risk a blister.
- Stay hydrated. All organized walks have plenty of facilities for bathroom breaks.
- Don't eat or drink anything new. This isn't the day to try sport gel for the first time.
