Any tips on how to walk 24 hours straight?


I participate in the American Cancer society's fundraiser Relay for Life every year, and this year I want to bump up my donations by walking for the entire 24-hour event. I have heard it's been done before but I am certainly nervous I won't be able to finish. I've run two marathons, however, and feel I am in good shape. From Internet research, it looks like comfortable socks and shoes are key. Any other tips for training, preparation, etc. would be much appreciated!

    Thank you so much - I hadn't even considered that side of this experience and I'm very glad you pointed it out. I think that will have a lot to do with finishing...

    Thank you! I am dreading the blisters but will do my best to prevent them, and have Band-Aids handy :) The linament is a great idea!
