Are We There Yet?
I'm beat. I'm tired. I'm cranky. I'm ready for the race to start. I'm ready for the finish line. The picture is me climbing Mt Whitney (with buffalo runner "Mr Clean") after last year's Badwater race. I was hurting. Of course, ultrarunners don't give up, so you push on and reach the finish line (or summit of Whitney). Once I get through today's race errands, things will start to settle down on Friday. I hope everyone has a safe trip to the race. I'll see you soon. The weather isn't looking too bad--a little windy, but no rain for the race, and nice cool temperatures. That's a lot better than the thunderstorms, hail, sleet, and wind that hit us on Mt Whitney as we descended from the 14,505 foot peak!
Current weather forecast for the race:
PRECIP: Rain Thursday. Partly sunny Saturday.
WINDS: Breezy with gusts around 26 mph.
