Badwater Prediction:

between 40 and 50 hours, in both of my Double Ironman races 1994,1996 I about 12hrs for the run splits 52.4 miles and that was after swiming 4.8 miles and biking 224 miles

Weird Experience:

In 1996 experienced some outer body experiencies on the run portion of the Double Ironman after going for about 21hrs all out, I saw myself next to me running. Very weird.

Challenge:

1996 Double Ironman.It was the second time doing the race for me, hard day lots of wind on the bike.I worried I lot about my wife that day who was with me. She was six months pregnant with my twin daughters.It all worked out though I finished 4th overall one place better than 1994

Why:

I love the challenge.I like to push my self to the limit phsically and mentally.It makes you apreciate every day life much more.

Why badwater:

It is the Big Daddy for me.I heard about this race in 1987 and thought some day I would love to do that.For years I worked on Triathlons and know I am starting to focus more on my running. Runing has always been my favorite.Iam 35 and think Iam finnally ready mentally and phisically to atempt the challenge.Not just the race but the next six months of traing for it.The preperation for a race of this magnitude is vital in the completion of this race.
