Badwater Prediction:

- on past times, i would have to say: 50..60, but ........ am really going for sub 48 (not quite a paul stone, but in that direction)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Weird Experience:

- not weird, but still one of my favorites was the coldfoot classic (no longer held), which was run entirely in the artic circle, on the long haul highway ... extremely cold, but northern lights were spectacular

Challenge:

- i have to switch from badwater to hurt 100 - i took myself out of that run (switched from the 100m to the 100k), and it has been wearing on me all year long (am going back in a couple of weeks for hurt 2 ... and hope to do the 100m)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Why:

- love the personal challenge and the great people you get to meet

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Why badwater:

- kind of have an affection for it, like it, plus i still want to get to the top of whitney after the run

Other Exp.:

- like to mt climb ... have done mckinley, and most of the peaks here in the northwest
