Finished 3rd place overall in 9th Badwater 135 behind two amazing world class athletes; Japan’s Yoshihiko (1st) and Poland’s Patrysia Bereznowska (2nd). Yoshihito got the new course record in 21:33:01 having a vision of two years of coming to Badwater and even better he proposed to his significant other (She said yes 😊)!

BADWATER was an absolutely battle from start to finish. A battle in the exterior world with the elements and the other racers; and a battle in the mind to keep positive & moving when it seems no longer possible. I fought through innumerable challenges including overheating and my toughest climb to the finish up Whitney. At a point, holding onto 3rd seemed exceptionally unlikely.

Everything should be credited to my team; Crew Chief, Matt Garrod, Peter Matus, Patrick Hasler & Chad Wolfe. We saw a shaggy coyote the very last moment before we drove off to the start before the race. When we talked about spirit animals on the way to the start; we had two dogs, a Wolf and Matt was a chinchilla. My spirit animal the dragon did come out on the first mountain and I had one of the fastest ascents to Townes Pass of any racer but overall my spirit animal was that shaggy coyote. Fighting tooth and nail, the underdog, not the strongest, the fastest but spirit that refuses to quit no matter the difficulty. More is possible than we know in any of us.

We were buzzed by buzzed by 3 navy fighter jets and it was freaking out of this world! So loud and so cool; they were so close!

Thanks for all the love and prayers sent! Thanks Kelly for being at the finish! I dreamed of getting to you! Thanks my friend Tracey Outlaw for sharing all the posts and being so generous with your time!

If you look closely, you will see that famous smile.
Still pushing, still soaking in the beauty and still smiling.
Lone Pine awaits.
