Today (Oct. 27) is Allyson's first day of Portuguese language training at the Foreign Service Institute. It's also my first day of training for a 24-hour race that will take place on March 27, exactly five months from today. Since Pedestrianism came out I've been asked several times whether I've ever taken part in a long-distance walking match. I haven't. The longest race I've ever run was a 5K. Then I got an email from a reader who's an endurance athlete--he runs 100-mile races--and he really encouraged me to sign up for an endurance race. He gave me the encouragement I needed. If all goes well, five months from today I will be in Idaho, taking part in the Pickled Feet 24-Hour Race. I don't intend to run, actually; I plan to walk "fair heel and toe" in the style of the old pedestrians. But I plan to take it seriously. I've signed up for a distance training program, and I'm really determined to make a good score. I will keep you posted on my progress...
