To prepare for a long walk do some stretches and limber up with a little pre-walk walk. Get a walking buddy for conversation and then choose some music in case you need some quiet time. Jazz is a good option, as are John Philip Sousa’s marches. That is how Dr. Louis W. Sullivan prepares for a long walk. And the man knows a thing or two about walking. He’s been taking long walks for 46 years and is the inspiration and perspiration behind the Sullivan Run/Walk on Martha’s Vineyard, now in its 28th year.
