SM 100
« on: August 25, 2009, 05:37:55 AM »
Alright. I'll be home in about 5 days...  ;D
 
who is doing the SM 100 this year?  anyone man or woman enough? sean you been there you need to go back, gregg, morrision, marcel no excuses it's time for a decision. it's not as bad as you think its going to be. it's worse. but the experience is worth a lifetime.
 
anyone else! i hope to see some of you at the campground. unfortunately i can't carpool with you guys. i'm leaving for north carolina as soon as i get home.
 
going to spend some time with my daughter and try to acclimate as best as possible with some hills prior to the race. BUT HOPEFULLY i'll see some of you guys up there. just look for the Trek Bicycles of Raleigh Tent. you'll find my brother and i there.

I am for sure wanting to do SM 100 or FG 100 next year

I want to do something different than the 12 hour circuit races

so do them both. i'll race them both with you. far as training. you are doing plenty already. it's more like a ride for you and i than a race. it's a personal race, yeah this year i am shooting for a 12 hour finish time. and if i don't cramp and get the *s i should do fine. i might break 12. who knows.
 
bottom line, your ready, i'd love to race it with you brother. you and all the other guys. the experience is so much different.. it's cool.
