Man, plans change all the time. Who knows what will happen in 12 hours. But as of right now, I’ll be leaving Albuquerque in the AM and headed to Moab.
The TeddNeck’s registered for the race, but the TeddNeck has responsibilities and he must be responsible. What? Yeah, just like I said. The TeddNeck must put in a full day of work tomorrow, must be back at work on Monday AM. So The TeddNeck may blow off the race. Who knows.
I’m ready for the race. I am psyched for the race. I have no responsibilities, therefore I’m headed to the race. Oh yeah, I just started 3 weeks of vacation. So that four letter word that starts with a ‘W’ and ends with a ‘K’. I know nothing about it.
I am set for one crazy weekend. Oh, I mean…. I am set for a crazy 3 weeks. My bikes are ready, my mind is ready and my body is ready. Maybe. I’ve been consuming calories like there is no tomorrow – solid food and liquid food. (Remember, Beer is Food!) I am bloated, retaining water…. like Hoover Dam. But I feel good. We will see if the Demons win the battle at the 24 Hours of Moab, or if The Judd wins the battle. My money is on The Judd. Just because.
Well, I won’t bore you with verbiage today. I’m in the zone, the racing zone. I need to finish packing, I need to finish a few Dale’s Pale Ales. I need to chill out.
So, check out this short video from the 2009 edition of the 24 Hours of Moab. The video is a clip of Lemans Start. (Back of the Pack Racers HATE running, HATE the Lemans start.) Anyway, be patient. It’s a 23 second video. The TeddNeck and The Judd enter the video at 15 seconds. The Judd’s on the left; The TeddNeck’s on the right. And NO… the video isn’t in Slow Mo, dude. We are two slow dudes. We are at the Back of the Pack. That’s just the way it is.
Two Fat (PHAT) Dudes and a bunch of Psycho Runners.
