I am turning myself inside out wondering about this race, ben shockey puts into words everything that I am thinking. I physically feel strong enough to finish. Riding with the Slender Fungus will hold my head up high and keep me in good spirits. The bike position is dialed.....I am nervous never having competed in an ultra endurance event and excited all at the same time. I am telling myself that this race will get finished....I sure hope the weather cooperates and is not too muddy like last year was. Pre-race thoughts entry coming tomorrow.
