1. Spiritual: Daily Mass, prayer.
2. Intellectual: French review. Because the Chartres Pilgrimage is a French pilgrimage, and we foreigners are just tagging along, and there's going to be a lot of French. Pimsleur, as always, is AWESOME!
3. Physical: Many long hikes, followed by intense care of feet. Much making of sugar-free recipes that can be stored in air-tight containers and taken on the road. Waking up at 6 AM every day.
4. Psychological: Much reading of excellent and exciting book called "Survival." Much consulting of pilgrims who keep telling me how painful the pilgrimage is, how exhausting and how badly their feet hurt by the end.
