How long is 40 miles? Can little Henry III complete the Avon walk with no problem??
So, how long is a 40 mile walk? As I get ready for the 40 Mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this weekend I’ve been talking to a lot of people of what it’s going to be like to walk 40 miles. How bad could it be? When we look at the map, if I were to start in my hometown of Whippany and walk 40 miles, I could easily get to the following:
- The Jersey Shore
- New York City
- The Delaware Water Gap
- The Statue of Liberty
- Where I work down in Hazlet
Well, it seems as though a lot of people think that this brief little walk is going to be more then I think and have set a challenge out for me to see how my body is going to be feeling after the 40 Mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this weekend.
I’m sure I’ll feel fine and to prove this, I’ve accepted the challenge of not only participating in my fire departments search & rescue drill on the Tuesday night following the walk, though as an added bonus I’ll finish a mile on the high school track in full turnout gear (app. 60-70lbs) after the drill in less than a ½ hour. They were giving me an hour, though who needs that long!!!
So, what do you think? Fill out the attached survey and less find out….
