The ol'bod is finally getting back to normal. Blisters are all healed up now. Next week, I'll be out again. Badwater 2009 is done....but it's really not over. I still have some unfinished business in Death Valley. I hope to return next year.
Next on the list... 24 The Hard Way.
Have a great day everyone!

Badwater 2009 Finish

going up Mt. Whitney portal road...still hot!

climbing Mt. Whitney

Finish line!!!

We finished Badwater 2009!!! A huge gratitude to my crew (my family) for sticking with me. We started the journey together from Badwater, and climbed Mt. Whitney to the finish line. This is the race that I'll remember the most in my lifetime. We had our ups and downs...lots of downs...but never gave up. We kept moving forward!

A big thanks also goes out to Chris Kostman and his crew for putting on Badwater Ultramarathon. He makes it all happen. And the people along the course, they make it all worthwhile to trek 135 miles in 122 deg across the Death Valley. And if you ask me if I would do it again?... you bet!!!

Happy Trails!

As we make way to Death Valley, we just had to run down vegas strip. Just a neat site.

We'll be heading to Furnace Creek, CA for our race prep. Wish us luck. We are going to have a great adventure.

Happy Trails!
