Congrats, Lisa Smith-Bachen on Finishing The Badwater Quad
Imagine attempting the original Badwater course, 135+ miles across Death Valley right to the top of Mt. Whitney, and then turning around and doing it backwards. Now imagine refueling and doing the double ONE MORE TIME. That's the Badwater Quad, 584 miles of complete insanity. And it's what Lisa Smith-Batchen finished in July in 14 days, 3 hours, and 51 minutes, becoming the first woman to do so. The LA Times has a great write up about it here.

Lisa and her crew went after the grueling record to raise money for clean water, and is still accepting donations. Congrats, Lisa!
