Ok, Badwater was in July. Six months ago. Still there is no race report. After two draftes of a version that would never do it was decided that today there will not be a race report for Badwater. What happened? This race was just to personal, to raw and to hard to describe to do it any justice. Many good writers are able to put thought to paper, explain their feelings and get it all out in a legible form. This runner,not so much. Finish, yes. 41hr 27min. Forty One Hours and Twenty Seven Minutes. Still today it is hard to comprehend. So that's about it. Except for the thanks that are deserved:

Thank you, Jennifer, Scott, Sarah and Mike for keeping me nourished, moving and happy for such an incredibly long time.

Thank you. Drymax socks for flawless feet! Always the best socks, and they see action EVERY DAY. These feet were about as good as they have been in a hundred mile race, given the extreme conditions, and probably better!

Thank you Getting To Tri Foundation!!! As always, wearing the G2T logo gives us the chance to tell people what a great charity this is! Thanks Mike for always having a kind word no matter how crazy you think we are.

Thank you, Polar Bottles for keeping all of us fueled with consistently cold water and supplements though the most extreme conditions on earth. (125 Degrees) These Bottles Rock!

And that is the Badwater report.
