Today, Mike Morton did something he alluded to over the phone a few months ago (see article). He told me he planned to do well at the Badwater Ultramarathon. His friends, who I interviewed for the May/June issue of Endurance Racing Magazine, believed hed take the first place prize. He did not dissapoint.

And not only did Morton win, he almost updset the course record which meant that this first timer broke the coveted 24 hour mark on his first attempt at this race.

There were so many other epic athletes who came to race at Badwater this year. Veteran runner, Alan Webb (70) actually BROKE his record at Badwater by 51 amazing minutes.

World renown ultramarathoner, Dean Karnazes, finished 12th.

During the day I followed Adventure Corps twitter feed, checking who was where and how they were doing. Unfortunately, there were some DNFs, but that happens. Its part of racing. Todays is Mikes day to bask in the glory of his win and for that, we celebrate with him.
