Mt. Whitney Here We Come

The primary objectives/goals for Badwater this year are to race smart, improve on last year's performance, gain a greater appreciation for what the Badwater experience is all about, and, of course, "have fun and keep smiling".

There is also a secondary, post-race objective, and it can only be reached by getting to 14,505...feet that is, and the top of the highest peak in the lower 48 states, Mount Whitney.  Weather and trail conditions permitting (the trail apparently is still snow-covered closer to the summit), the plan is to make a go for the summit.

  1. Tony, Sorry I can't make the summit but I am psyched to share in the Badwater experience with you, the rest of the crew and all those out there this year. I feel lucky to be a part of it. You will do great and it will be a blast. Peace EricG
