Badwater 2012

Death Valley is not a nice place.  That pretty much sums up my trip to the Badwater Ultramarathon.  With that said, it was a great experience and I am glad that I went.  Would I ever trun the race?  I won't say never, but I don't have a great desire to.  Would I crew again?  Maybe, but not anytime soon.

How did the race go?  It went OK.  It was long, hot, windy, hot, and dark again.  Jeff never once wanted to quit.  He kept on chugging through and I was very impressed with his determination and overall spirit during the 38 hours that it took him to complete the race.

Below is our experience in photos.  Enjoy!
