What you're experiencing sounds perfectly normal to me. Parents worry -- can't be helped.
Those kids (young adults, really) are fit and well equipped -- especially for medical emergencies.
They're crossing at a favorable time of year, in an area with plenty of traffic that can render assistance if need be.
They probably won't set any speed records, they might hit a few rough patches and bumps along the way, but they'll be fine.
