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.


Challenge:

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


Why:

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.
