Badwater Ultramarathon

It's one bad ultra..135 miles through the desert. Yeah, 135 miles.

You must watch this 15 minute movie. It only takes a few seconds to register and then whammo! You are at Badwater.

Note: Dusty Olson is Scott Jurek's pacer. I met him at Ed Fitz in October. He was fun to talk to and awesome to watch run :)

Cool video!

Jurek is the darling of Duluth running. I graduated HS with his wife. Amazing runners...

I live in the Seattle area so got to watch the video on the local T.V. and also get to see Scott and Leah his wife at local ultra's. Although I have never spoken to him before, because my lame friends who know him do not introduce me, he seems like a very nice down to earth guy. I was at the Mcdonald Forest 50K in Oregon last year when many of us were just hearing that he was planning on running Badwater. His friends were asking him what he was thinking since he was not much of a road runner. I guess he answered that question.
