Badwater Prediction:

It would be fair to say that I have a good chance to finish between 40 and 50 hours. The 1993 Mohican Trail was held under tough heat and humidity conditions. The temp in the shade was 95F. 24 out of 72 finished. The 1987 Hawaiian Ironman had a pavement temperature of about 125F. I have competed in 472 events since 1981, so I feel that I have enough experience now to tackle this challenge.

Challenge:

The most challenging event that I have done was not an ultrarun, but the cross country Canadian Ski Marathon. In 1997, I skied 50 miles with a pack (containing sleeping bag, food,clothing,gear),slept outside on the snow with the temp at -22F,then skied the remaining 50 miles the next day. No indoor comforts.

Why:

It is part of my lifestyle. I run marathons with my 2 daughters. The eldest qualified for Boston when she was 17. We have run 3 of those as well as several in Europe together. My youngest will be running the Disney Marathon with me in January. When I go to visit my eldest in New Zealand, I will be competing in the Ironman there in March.
