With Fear and Anticipation

2+ days to go.

I now have a very large list of items to bring with me for the ride. There are still food items I need to purchase, but I think I have everything else I need. Except about 1 month of additional time. Yeah, that might be nice.

nah... if you had one more month, we'd be reading this post one month from now, and it'd say the exact same thing. I know... that'd be what mine would say.

I'm looking forward to reading the report...complete with gory details.

And I agree with your brother... My experience is that no matter how well prepared I may be, I always spend the last week before an event wishing I'd worked just a little harder.

(hey, maybe there's a fireside talk in there somewhere)

Anyway, good luck. You're going to suffer. You might as well know that up front. Then it won't come as a surprise to you when it begins.

Let us know if you survive.

And if I don't survive, my wife will let you know in my place.

Do you have a time goal? Like "I want to finish in under 11 hours". That sort of thing?

Jon Sharp said...

The time cut-off is around 13 hours. I want to finish before that. Under 12 would be fantastic, but as long as I don't get a DNF for missing the time cut-off, I'll be happy.
