Have you ever done a charity walk? Were you able to walk much father than you expected you could?

I want to do one coming up in May. Its a long one and typically I think I could do maybe a quarter of the way but wonder if the moment will get me through farther or even all the way? I exercise every day and am fit but I also have asthma and so cardio is challenging for me.

I did a walk for Breast Cancer with my Aunt in Chicago. It was a incredible experience and I was so infatuated with the city and my surroundings and the millions of people that I did not pay any attention to the distance I was walking. The day went by so fast. I walked a lot farther then I expected.

Guardian for 3-day for the cure breast cancer walk?

I am planning on doing the 3-day with my friend and her mom.
We are both 16 and it says we have to have a guardian on the walk.
Can her mother be considered my guardian as long as my parents allow it?

There is no other way for me to be able to do the walk unless she can be my guardian.

i think that would be ok good luck take care, mike uk

Can I use indoor training shoes for walking outside?

I want to buy a pair of adidas kundos but the label says for indoor use only. I checked out wikipedia and it said indoor shoes are also used for things like marathon runs and basketball but I’m not sure if they meant indoor running and basketball. So what do you think, can I use them for casual use outdoors like walking or do you think they might tear or something cause of sun and temperature and blah blah?

no they arent that fragile. i mean they dont have grip at the bottom so you might slip at worst but you can use them for anything you want as long as it works
