    This is cool. An epic (to use an already overused word) journey in the making, in more than one sense of the word.

    Just so it is all clear. Last time I raced something of this distance involved a 2k run 90k bike and a 21k run. On the hottest July day around.

    No expectations...simple aim is...finish.

    It will be. And the most important detail of the day is the fact I don't have to worry about driving standard home.

    For your next post, I am assuming you will ask me to define "goods".

    How not to train for 100k.

    3 hours of rock hauling.



    One off road Can Am makes grabbing field stones so much easier.

    Make sure they don't drug test, then bring some Red Bull and Sudafed for the final 4 hours

    Had a good discussion with a local kid at J&J yesterday about the 100k. He did it and says best strategy for anyone doing it is to take it easy on the first 40-50k through the Singletrack. He said first time he went to hard and beat himself up which caught up later. Took it easier the next time and had a better result.

    Was in the LBS yesterday with my daughter and met Paul's mother. She was out handing PDE posters to hang up. She noticed I was wearing a PDE shirt and said "Hi" and thanks for riding.

    I woulda never known but I was glad to meet her.

    /random comment I know, back to my cave.

    Right now I'm planning on riding it geared. I know I can ride it SS because I've done it but I will be able to ride more and push less (especially in the first 40k) with gears. Besides if I ride SS I have to attack everything which is less conducive to riding tandem with Chris. And unlike Chris, I do have to drive a car with a standard transmission home. If I live

    Speaking from experience from the days when I did Ultra trail marathons. Driving after events like this really sucks when done immediately after. Because leg cramps...to the point of full lock on the 401 is highly entertaining.

    Already noted the Starbuck's locations between Ganny and the Mother in Laws for the drive home after.

    Self massage via the original Fit Stik. If you are under 25 and have no idea what this is. Ask your mother or better your grandparent.

    Shave what? Your legs? Or other unmentionables? Or maybe nothing is actually unmentionable?

    Let's see we so far have two 29ers and 26er Chromag set up Enduro style. All that is needed is some one to show up on a Fatbike for this....fully rigid of course.

    I'm confused. Which do you want to be fully rigid, the Fatbike or the rider?

    Bike of course. Some how attempting to ride with Rigor Mortis might not be medically sound.

    I have no control over this. I find a strong correlation between drop bag and heat and work rate. I use a scale, the BSF (Bag Sag Factor), ranging from 1 to 10. Each number kinda representative of an inch of additional sac length.

    It works with society and conversation too, for example:

    Enduramil: "Ed, would you like to join Unglued and I on our ride?"

    Me: "No."

    Enduramil: "Why?"

    Me: Unglued is into something called "training" and he may be a Type A"

    Enduramil: "So?"

    ME: "Riding with people that train can lead to uncomfortable BSFs"

    Enduramil: "...but it"s exercise"

    Me: "For my BSF to exceed 5 I must be getting paid"

    Enduramil: "Forc Hugh."

    In response I present "Warren's Law"'

    1. Racing is like writing an exam. If you don't write any exams you never know where you stand.

    2. The problem with racing is it gets in the way of training.
