i have amazing friends, this is undeniable.
lisa smith-batchen; lisa embarked on a three part epic to raise $500,000 for aids orphans (lisa's 810). 1st stage: she ran 140+ miles from las vegas to the start of the 2008 badwater 135. which she did.. 2nd stage: run badwater... and this just in - i just got of the phone with lisa and she finished badwater in 47hrs 17min! so she gets a sub 48hr buckle! congrats lisa!
my DART-nuun adv racing teammate jen segger also put in a great effort by taking 9th overall at badwater. she was 5th female in 32hrs 31min! congrat seegs!
i don't know jamie donaldson personally, but she is a fellow montrailian... and she crushed this race. so i have to say - i'm impressed jamie. she set a course record by running the 135 miles in 26hrs 51min! 3rd overall. damn.
