    P36 Roll-call!

    Hey everybody! This is the P36 roll-call thread. Are you in and ready to kick-ass??? ready to register but trying to save up the $30 entry fee? Need to find a partner willing to cuddle in the forest? Talk about it here:
    You can please some people sometimes but you can't please all the people all the time.

    Since my track was the only one on the parkway I can't even imagine that anyone else is 'training'. . .

    If by training, you mean ice skating while holding a bike, then yes, I've done a lot!



    I think Laurel Mtn and yellow gap would be more fun with a bobsled tho...

    I know how important it is to be drinking beers while riding a mountain bike on snow and ice. BUTT if there is any sober riders, maybe that's asking too much let's say at least conscious riders. I'm looking for someone to ride the 36r with. Let me know if you know anyone. I don't care if they’re plastered the whole 36 hrs. Hopefully they just know the trails better then I do.
    There are Mountain Bikes and then there is "The Santa Cruz High Ball"

    I'll promise to be there for you at all the turns if you promise to go slow enough to not wear me out in the first six hours

    I can't make any sobriety promises after the first 50 miles though...

    I promise to stay reasonably sober, but I don't know the trails that well. Oh yeah, I am also looking for someone to try to not get lost with.

    I am planning both to drink a little and to get lost a little. I will be solo in order to avoid disappointing anyone who wants their race to include more or less drinking and/or being lost than I intend.
    I may also plan to dominate the chick category, depending on if Shanna shows up.

    "I may also plan to dominate the chick category"!?!

    Take the "may" out of your mind, as it is not part of the OSTD (Official Smack Talk Dictionary - which I just made up. That ok PP?)

    I'm breaking in my new hiking boots quickly. These with a set of platforms (and maybe some crampons) might come in handy next month!

    Surely not, if they do I heard a rumor that PP won't let us use them during the race as an extra special test.

    Well, last I heard, I was the only entrant in the chick category. So if that is still the case, my domination of the category will be of monumental proportions. VICTORY IS MINE!

    Cool! If Erinna doesn't bring her dog, I'll know who to give my pizza to.

    Anybody know how I can drop 30 pounds, become familiar with Pisgah, improve my cardio and get ready for this race in the next 30 days? Thanks in advance.
    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm still waffling on entering. If we go duo again Yeti - I will have a few rules
    1 - No sleeping
    2 - No eating of big meals(China Buffet)
    3 - No stopping
    4 - No telling anybody that I have dropped out early(If that happens)

    It was probably like the scene in "Stand By Me" where everybody starts throwing up all together.
