Is it really that time again?

I mean, time to train and taper for another 24 hour solo. Yes, it is that time. My brain and body are in *almost* complete off-season, fun-riding, beer-drinking mode so I'm having to try really hard to override that. My goals for this upcoming race are simple...not to cry. Yeah, I want to see if I can actually race my bike for 24 hours without crying.. I cried at the BURN race because I was so frustrated with my fork mechanicals, and my forearms were killing me from riding the Reba fork locked out. I cried even more at 24 hour Nationals feeling sorry for myself from the rear flat episode and being given uncharged or low-burn time batteries by my pit crew. But, that's all in the past...

After that, Eddie and I will be trying some new offseason training plans and I will be building a nutrition plan for us so we can both be way stronger and faster next year!!! We are also planning a long trip to FL in December so we can get in some long quality outdoor miles this winter!

So...when I do Burn next year, is it a pre-requisite that I cry? I'm sure I will, but I want to know if it's mandatory!!! :)

Can't wait to follow along with your training plan. Maybe we'll see you in FL, we're going down right after Xmas this year.

No, it's not mandatory. Actually, it's only for sissies like me.

Cool, we'll probably see you in FL then!

The last thing on earth I would ever call you is a sissy!

Not this year. Hopefully I can do it next year. Sounds like a fun race.

Cry all you want. As long as it gets you across the finish line ;)

Haha, thanks.

I guess I should have also said my other goal is to "W"..but it looks like there is only one solo category (male & female combined). I'd be happy with 2nd as long as Eddie O takes 1st :)
