Badwater training cont.

I'm just outside of town.
...very long road.
My Badwater training continues. Last week, I was out in Clayton, NM. Elev. 5050. The temps may not be reaching 120 deg, but the conditions were still harsh. Just the elevation itself made up alot for it. And the wind was blowing like crazy. I was able to do some road training. I'll be doing it again this week. Have fun everyone!

Badwater start times

The field is set. Start groups are assigned. Have you ever asked yourself.... "what in the world have I got myself into?" When I looked at the start times, I was expecting to be in the 6am group...or maybe 8am group...since this was my first time. But they put me with the 10am group...that's the elite group. Holy Crap!!...has the select committee lost their minds? The bar is raised even higher.
However... ever since I started eyeing this race, I've been looking forward to the Badwater challenge. And the 10am group is where it happens. Bring it on!!!
