Coach has got my body dialed in. Too bad I couldn't pay her to do all the rest of the crap that is necessary when racing solo for 24 hours.
This past week has been pretty busy in preparation. I can so far check these off the list:
- Bikes dialed in.
- Burn times for lights established. (Coach loaned me lots of batteries!)
- Pit tent waterproofed.
- T-shirts for pit crew acquired.
- Lodging reserved.
- First draft of nutrition plan complete.
Next week I am headed over to the Dark Mountain Trail to do another 8 hour dress rehearsal. Then I am going to hook up with Kip and Co. and ride the other trails in that area. I have heard numerous times that they are da' bomb!
Also happening next week is my presentation to the student body of Ingleside School. Some talking followed by some show-and-telling should keep the kids interested!
I dialed Stumpy today in on the Haw Ridge trails. They were in superb shape; a lot of maintenance and bridge building has been going on since the last time I was there. Check out the Friends of Haw Ridge on Facebook!
