Badwater Prediction:

Under 40 hours: I would like to finish in 35 hours. My PR for Badwater is 38:47, and, hopefully, I will eliminate all the things I did wrong on the other ones.

Weird Experience:

Black bear ran into the side of my truck at the Badwater finish at Whitney Portals in 1996.

Challenge:

All ultra races and the 100 milers in particular. The Badwater races. Hardrock because of the altitude and starting too fast the first time and fracturing my ankle at 9 miles the second time in 2001.

Why:

For the physical challenge and being outdoors. You have to focus on the race and that leaves everthing else a million miles away.

Why badwater:

It is such a great adventure. Death Valley is like a fantasy place. To rise to the occassion and try to better my times. Of course, making many friends keeps me coming back.
