Best Ultra Run Experience:

Badwater 1996-Came to the race for the first time and finished well and fought through major difficulties during the run.

Weird Experience:

Hallucinating during the 96 Badwater-I've never been in that bad of a state for that to happen. Now I
can't even remember what stae it was.


Badwater - It is by far the most difficult course as far as punishment on the body and trying to control emotions and bodily function.


To experience the great mental and physical challenge they offer and to share that with the many ultra friends in my life.

Why badwater:

To try and achieve my maximum potential on the course, which I do not feel I have done yet.

Other Exp.:

No other sports, running has my full passion.
