Badwater Prediction:

Between 40 and 50 hours. With my race times in both Old Dominion (100 miles in 18:44) and Olander Park (110 miles in 24 hours), I am confident I can finish between 40 and 50 hours.

Weird Experience:

Olander Park - 2001: Running the same 1.1 mile loop was definately a bit on the weird side. Being out there with so many great runners - and seeing everyone's high's and low's was something to remember.

Challenge:

Old Dominion - 2001: The stretch from miles 75 to 86 was tough. Anyone who has run this race, knows about Shermans Gap and Veech Gap - 2 awesome hills!

Why:

I love the challenge of pushing myself, both mentally and physically - there is no other sport like it!

Why badwater:

I have heard many great stories about Badwater, mainly from my coach, Lisa Smith. I have also seen the Running on The Sun video (countless times). It is such a great event, and I am looking forward to pushing myself beyond my limits, and experiencing it all!
