sending in receipts?
I have several Iron Butt Association ride certificates. I am not doing it for anyone else, I am doing it for ME, but I send in my receipts and get the cert. because I like the souvenir of my ride, and the small payment helps support the Iron Butt Association and the work they do. With respect, if you do 1000 miles in 24 hours and do not go through the process of having your ride certified by the IBA, you have not done a SS1000, you have done a 1000 mile ride, which is a great accomplishment, but to actually do a certified ride you must get witnesses and have all your receipts in order, so it requires a little extra discipline. I encourage you to send in your receipts, I always like to see more women in the IBA lists, it serves as an inspiration to others.
