First 100 Mile Entry Mailed

Today, I filled out and mailed my entry to the 100 Mile National Championship Ride. The ride will be October 16, 2008, in Henryville, Indiana. This will be my and Tanna's first 100 mile ride.

Even though I'm still not walking, I am optimistic that we will be able to go!

Very cool! I hope you're able to do it! Have you found someone to take over Tanna's conditioning while you're out of commission?

Hi April:

I was just checking the requirements and it appears that you must have at least one 100 mile competition together before the championship ride, so it seems you may not be qualified..

Hopefully this isnt the case! Best of luck.

Hi, Tamara, thanks for the encouragement. I don't trust Tanna to treat another rider properly, so I am his only rider. I think I'll be able to keep him legged up.

Anon, thanks for the tip, but that page hasn't been updated. A horse/rider team that has 1000 endurance miles together is qualified to ride either distance. The front-runners have nothing to fear, though! I'm only after the experience of doing a 100 mile ride and will likely be last or very nearly last. :)
