I just got home from an incredibly amazing experience. I was fortunate to be part of Team D's Nutz at the Badwater 135, and help crew and pace Jamie Donaldson to her second consecutive victory there.
David, Rob, Connie, and Eric showed me the ropes fast and we had a great crew for Jamie. Despite 27 hours, 20 minutes, and 18 seconds together (second fastest women's time, only to herself from last year) with really no sleep, we didn't have a single crew "incident". Pretty cool people to meet and hang out with.
The real star obviously was Jamie. Her patience, perserverance, hard work, grit, course knowledge, extremely up-beat attitude, no whining, zero pukeage, and just all around coolness factor, made Jamie the chick at Badwater.
I am humbled to have been a part of her experience. Thank you, Jamie.
