  1. Had a buddy do this race Willian Ansick. These people are crazy ... I'm guessing this race is on your radar?

  2. William - yes, one day my ultimate goal will be to run Badwater, probably several years out and hopefully I will have enough experience to get accepted to run by then. I would love to crew or pace someone next year. Do you know if your friend is running next year and if so, would need a crew member or pacer for part of the race? Thanks!

  3. where's the big race report, bri?
