-01: training

Less than an hour and a half away from leaving and only now am I seeing how I should have been training for this. To quote Jeremy

And if you think you're over training. You're not. Don't let your mind fool you into thinking you need some rest. Seriously. Be the master of your own mind. John Joseph is.

can't stop, won't stop

I leave tomorrow morning. Way too much stuff to probably do, but rather hang out with friends and panic in the morning.

On Thursday morning, at 4:30am, I leave with 41 other folks to ride from NYC to LA over the course of 55 days. It's a promotional thing for 42 Below vodka (oh, the irony) and the Bicycle Film Festival. We split up in Philly and half go a Southern route (2 and a half weeks crossing Texas?! Not for me!) and the rest of us go North!

I've got my bags kind of packed, my bike mostly packed up, and my loose ends tied and necessary bridges burnt. Made it through Tour of Washington County unscathed and spent all day today at Six Flags.

I'll be updating here and on the 42ride website.

Be back on September 3rd! The MABRA CX scene better watch out.
