Michelle Dickson offers her last-minute to-do list in preparation for next month's MS Challenge Walk Cape Cod 2015.

There's less than a month left until Challenge Walk MS: Cape Cod begins. Time to get it in gear! And no shortage of gear needed!

My "selfie" and "notes to self":

  • Break in my new sneaks ASAP
  • schedule all my training walk routes
  • review the downloadable CW "Travel and Information Guide"
  • send pledge reminders
  • update progress on my personal CW page
  • send thank yous from my Participant Center
  • keep walking, rain or shine
  • update my Facebook page with progress
  • dig out the CW "change of clothes bag" and don't over-pack again — well, sort of
  • replenish my survival kit: blister kit, muscle rub, OTCs, bug repellent, shark repellent??, sunscreen, caffeine, and of course chocolate
  • send pledge reminders — again
  • check in on final team logistics
  • check my pledge totals online, at least hourly
  • schedule post walk spa session
  • begin sleep walking — if necessary
  • plead for pledges — if necessary

Daily reminder: breathe deeply but keep moving — no sweat!
