Here I go again on my own-B1k
 
A few months back I told my riding buddies I was soloing the 1000 in nov but so far I've only been about 50% committed to the idea. There are 1000's of reasons why I shouldn't but daily the idea creeps back into my mind.

I decided the best way to commit to this is start a thread so that when I start doubting it you all can call me a pussy and straighten me out.:D

Now..... Maybe I should start training. :rofl

Good luck Matt!

Training is for pussies. Ride it straight off the couch. With a pack of Marlboros rolled up in your sleeve.

I've been training for V2R by running. Luckily, my wife runs also. We were doing an 8 mile run on Saturday, and it's like 80 degrees out. About half way thru I turn to her and say with a straight face that I have decided to do the 1000 this year. She just gave me that "look." You know the one.

Yep, you're commited now!

I with brents on this, everyone trains for a race, be original. See how little preperation you can do and still finish. Or see how spectacular you can fail.

I've never raced desert racing before. I have no RACE miles that I've done on or ridden. I am planning on riding to starbucks every day to train.
