The 40 miles walk was tough. I am starting to think about a more efficient way of doing the long distance walks. I find out about Chi walking. The concept is really interesting. I will be investigating more about Chi walking system. I think it may benefit all of us. I will definitely smear Vaseline, Neutrogena foot cream or Glide on my feet before the walk. Those blisters are really nasty!!! See you in the next walk.
Yes Paul, we did walk together during the One Day Hike in 2012. I really wanted to do your Kennedy 50K but just did not train and know that would have been a LOT to take on with no training. Hopefully next year. Looks like you got some good publicity for the event! NPR is not too shabby! I will not be doing the One Day Hike this year, memory of last year's pain is still to close at hand.
Thank you Paul for the warm welcome to the group. Risa Olinsky referred me and I'm grateful that she shared the information. I look forward to walking with you as well. Till we meet...have a wonderful weekend. Can't join the gang this Sunday but will be with you on the next outing! ~Juliet
Thanks Paul. I'm friends with Justin via Dennis Quinn. Dennis and I went to college together and were roommates in Jersey City for a while, and he tipped me off to the Kennedy Walk. I was out of town that weekend (and I'm probably not in 50 mile shape right now), but now I can work toward making the next one!
Hi Paul, Thanks for all the hard work you put in to make these walks possible! I have download the app and the map and am all ready to go. This should be really a challenging hike. Since the terrains are so varied, should I wear hiking boots or sneakers? Thanks again.
Hi Paul, I had a great time with the last walk. Thanks! I am coming directly from NYC for Lenape34. The 6:10 AM Morris & Essex #6305 arrive at Broad St at 6:28 AM. Morris Essex #0607 depart at 6:33 AM. This means that I will have to take two trains. Is the arriving and departing train will be in the same platform? Or do I have to go to different platform. The train will arrive at 6.55 AM, Will you wait if it is late? Thanks again.
Hi Paul, yes, Irelyn, my Mom and I enjoyed the walk even with the tough wind. We did get caught in the rain at the last minute be made it to the car just in time. It was great of Lin (Linda) to walk back with us from the train. Thanks again for everything and supplying my little one with all the mnms her little hands coud hold. :) Looking forward to the next walk.

Just a few days ago, I noticed, maybe for the first time, the sounds of the Great Canal Walk. For most of the 40 miles and 15 hours that day there was an absence of sound in this body of water as still as glass on that calm day....
