Best Ultra Run Experience:
Probably the last day of Coyote 4 Play in 2000. There was a spectacular storm when the rain was coming down in sheets and the winds were whipping in from the ocean. Met some terrific people that weekend.
Had a vivid hallucination at mile 98 at the Arkansas Traveller in broad daylight. Saw a bridge in graphic detail, but when I looked away for a second and then looked back, it was gone.
They are all challenging in their own way. I don't think that I've ever stood at the starting line and not had a few butterflies.
The challenge, the scenery, and the camaraderie. Each ultra experience has taught me something new about myself.
The stark beauty of the area and the extreme conditions make this a unique race. Being a participant in such an adventure will, without a doubt, help me redefine my limits.
