This is my fourth attempt at this beast. I think this is the one. Not sure why but I just feel incredibly calm right now. I know that there are only a few things that I can control (like where my heart rate is, how much I eat, how much I drink, etc.) and that I just have to let the other things go. In years past I have not done a good job at all of controlling the things that are within my power. I feel much more disciplined right now. This year I will not start over my head. I'm going to emulate a turbo diesel motor. Or...Tippy the Turtle.
We will leave from Waterton Canyon at 0600 on Monday and the adventure will begin. Here are some links where you can follow along.
