Say "Yes!" to 9 Mile

The decision is in: I will be doing 24 Hours of 9 Mile. I have a support person lined up, and I have located a back-up bike. Now I have to handle the logistics: I'm registered, but that's it. I need to figure out where to stay, how to get there, what to bring, etc. It's been a while since I did a 24-hour lap race.

This means Wilderness is out. My performance at back-to-back weekends of racing means the E100 is out. That in turn means I won't qualify for the overall in the National Endurance Series. (By the way, it looks like their site has been hacked...)

With that set of decisions out of the way, I can focus on training for the rest of this seasons' events. I'll still be at Shenandoah; I have at least one marathon race on the calendar, and a series of XC races leading up to Iceman. The 200-miler in Minnesota looks interesting. On second thought, it looks like there are still a few more decisions to be made.

Joe, have you ever raced the Laramie Enduro? Unfortunately it's the same weekend as 9 mile.
