A Badwater Poem

By 2001 Finisher Eberhard Frixe of Germany

I've caught the Badwater-Fever too,
and this is a poem from me to you.

The way to the Whitney Portal is long,
I say to myself I will be strong,
the days are hot and the sun is burning,
I have to control my power, and that's much for learning,
Oh highway to Lone Pine, I love you so,
sometimes I run, sometimes I go,
Running on the sun,
what a fun,
climbing up the hill by night,
it's so beautiful, the stars shine bright,
And then I can see the finish line,
A look to my watch: Badwater Buckle, you are mine!

I can't wait a so long time to race again,
Oh yeah, I'm a real Badwater Fan!
