Hal Koerner's Field Guide to Ultrarunning. Hal Koerner. The Cool Impossible. For me to one day run Badwater was, as they say a "no-brainer. From my perspective, I knew that deep down inside I had been training for almost a decade for something special; I just wasn't sure exactly what. I'd been putting in well over 90 miles a week during that time while maintaining a requiring hour-a-week job and a household with a wife, two sons and our black Labrador "Magic.
Now for the really hard part: finding a few people who would be willing to crew for me. Not only would they need to sacrifice a week of their respective lives; they would need to be in top physical not to mention mental shape to endure the challenges of the harshest environment they had ever encountered. Surprisingly, the search for a crew didn't take long at all: Al Barker Al Barker and I had been running 20 miles every Sunday morning together since Thanksgiving We had been to hundreds of races together during this time and became great friends. Ten years my senior, Al sported personal bests that mirrored mine in races of virtually every distance from the mile to the marathon Al is quick to point out that he ran a sub-five minute mile - I never did, but I always counter with me breaking in the marathon - which he never did.
I'll have to give him credit, though: After running with him for ten years I wasn't running anywhere near the fast times he had been running ten years earlier - back when he was my age. Asking Al if he would crew for me at Badwater was yes, I'm going to use the phrase one more time a no-brainer.
He eagerly accepted and we both decided we needed to focus on increasing our mileage and getting acclimated to the conditions we would face in the desert. We increased our mileage, occasionally putting in 30 or 35 miles on Sunday. We also believed our training in the heat and humidity of Atlanta, Georgia would probably translate well to the extremely hot yet arid conditions in Death Valley.
In time we would discover that our assumption was correct. The desert heat would ultimately be one of the least of our worries, however.
