Badwater: Final Prelude to Baldy Peaks 50k

Tue, 30 Jul 2002 09:24:12 -0700 Badwater: Final Prelude to Baldy Peaks 50k To all the Badwater Finishers out there...congratulations! What you now need is a cool, relaxing taper run to get the kinks out. And we've got that for you--in spades. And for those of you who didn't do Badwater, it's good for you too! Compare the Baldy Experience®™ to the Badwater Experience 50k vs 122/135 miles! More Trails...Less asphalt! Sanguine Big-horns smoking cigarettes vs circling buzzards! A cool 85 degrees vs 123 degrees! No need to push a shopping cart or pull a rickshaw! Aid Stations! 12Hr cutoff vs 60Hr cutoff! Baldy Peaks 50k inspires finishers to say "Damn! I'll never do *that* race again". And yet they come back, some say like gerbils to cocaine, others like swallows to Capistrano. Go ahead, dare to be Special!
