Catching some ZZZZs
I know you're waiting for the details and full story of my Badwater Double run. At this point I have about 4 nights worth of sleep still to catch up on, and I haven't even put a dent in it. My brain is still fuzzy and I haven't had time to process through everything that happened last week.
But I can say this: it was the best run ever and yes, I would do it again, and no, I'm not glad it's over. My feet look good, I already can see my tendons again and the one blister is on it's way to healing. I'm not thinking about the next adventure yet, but I will be soon.
I can't imagine anyone running Badwater and never doing a double at some point, because the race itself is over with too quickly, you don't get a chance to experience the beauty of that environment during the fast pace of the event. It's such a unique place and so peaceful, so humbling, so big, it has a way of putting all the pieces back together in their right place, like solving a puzzle. I'm not sure I can explain that further.
I have several hundred photos to sort through and I need to retrace my steps and with the help of my crew, remember the details. Over the next few days I expect to be piecing it all together, please check back here soon.
