Go for it.
As I told you in the PM. Boldness (not stupidity) is glorious. Failure is just something that might happen along the way.
Today my wife said that "once the start flag at baja drops, you've won. You've been dreaming about this for years and training for over a year. Every mlie past the start is a bonus."
I could not have said it better myself.
We will meet when you are in Utah. I'll just be getting back from my bonus miles in baja.
