Happy Badwater Day!

Today is the first day of the annual Badwater Ultramarathon. I've mentioned it in this journal before. It's a road race, 135 miles across Death Valley in July. It is considered the most demanding road race in the world, for good reason. Today's expected high is 114 degrees. Most of it is a gradual uphill (the race ends at Mount Whitney). The finishers will cross the line Wednesday.

Approximately 90 crazy people have entered this year. I will never do this race, but I love knowing it's out there. I like the kind of crazy that's about pushing the limits of endurance and adventure.

You can actually get updates about the race live on the website here. (It's been slow to load today for obvious reasons.)

Good luck, all!
