Yes. Some first-time event riders get caught up in the moment and go out too hard. Even if you do, it's only 35 miles. It's more of a problem when a person who has done no more than 40 miles pushes it too hard on a 75 mile ride and implodes at mile 55. I shared a room with a guy who did that on a two-day ride. He ended up messing up his knee and was so exhausted that he had his parents come pick him up. They were not happy about the long drive.
