If you are going beat Harvey Lewis at Badwater135, you will likely need to set a course record.

That is exactly what has happened in two of the past four years. In 2016, Harvey was second to Pete's Feet Across America - Pete Kostelnick when he set the course record. This year Ishikawa Yoshihiko set a new course record. Second place - Harvey Lewis.

This was Harvey’s 9th consecutive year finishing Badwater. I have had the honor of commandeering his social media for the Badwater race since 2014, the year he won.

Over the years we have seen him place second twice, third once, get engaged at the finish (reminiscent of Ishikawa this week), barely even make it to the start due to floods, and somehow finish last year despite a five day taper after 49 days on the Appalachian Trail! One year we celebrated Star Wars throughout the race! We are always on the look out for The Yeti, because with Harvey, it’s always an adventure.

For my wrap up, I chose these two photos as they best represent Harvey and Badwater to me. The first depicts his love to competitively race it with all he has for 135 grueling miles from Badwater Basin to Mt Whitney. The second photo taken moments ago represents his love for the people and this place that has grown each year. He loves the camaraderie of rookies and veterans that migrate to the desert every year to compete, He looks forward to bonding with his crew and seeing locals like Badwater Ben Jones and RD Chris Kostman, and he’s proud of his fellow Cincinnati and Ohio athletes represented in the field. But no one is more important than Kelly Odell. She has supported him and surprised him along the course. They were engaged here and have post race traditions this unique place - hikes up Mt Whitney, dips in cool pools and walks in the desert.

THANK YOU - to each and every one of you - for joining us on another journey. I appreciate every like, share and comment and I know Harvey does as well as he relives the race through the page. And thank you to his sponsors listed below for believing in Harvey and helping him DREAM BIG.

I’m already looking forward to Harvey’s 10th Badwater finish and another wild ride in 2020. I hope you are too.
