    I was pretty confident about this until I signed up and thought about it! Still.. nothing ventured nothing gained!

    • Venkat

      What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger ;)

  • Encee

    Does anyone know if this walkathon is the same difficulty level as Egmond? Are there are a lot of dunes to climb?

    January 26, 2014

    • Encee

      At Egmond I ended alongside a woman with a walking stick. :) So I will hold you to the promise of cheer, Venkat!

      January 29, 2014

    • Venkat

      Ask around: I've a good reputation of making good of promises: music bands along the way, toy train, balloons & bouquet at the finish ... you name it :-p

  • rhiannon

    Sorry to disappoint your predictions Venkat, but I am expecting hail, sleet and snow...

    January 6, 2014

  • rhiannon

    Hmmmm... might check the March weather predictions before signing up for this again Venkat! ;-)

    January 5, 2014

    • Venkat

      ha ha ... I am sure it wont be a repeat of last year's monster storm. Look at the weather now, it's almost spring. By March, we'll be walking on the beach in flip flops ;)
