How does one prepare for a 450km walk?
First and foremost, willpower. A pure, undiluted mindset and unwavering belief in the goal. Each and every one of our footsteps need to be made with convinction in this goal. Each and every one of our footsteps needs to be heard a thousand-fold louder in the halls of Paris COP21.
Ofcourse, a good pair of shoes always helps. During the first walk from Oxford to Copenhagen ( see Past walks) , I had a pair of rugged MBT shoes, which eventually reached the end of its tether. For the upcoming walk, I will be using a pair of Salomon shoes, which has already seen a cumulative total of 350km in practice walks , in and around Bangalore, Chennai, Puducherry and Auroville.
With all your lovely support, both directly and indirectly, these Salomon shoes will carry me swiftly to our shared goal !!
