Arrowhead 135 Ultramarathon, 2019 - My 8th Attempt: “Embrace your Failures”
EBB Status 2018
As a practice run leading up to my 7th attempt at the Arrowhead 135. A month earlier I will be training in Minnesota running the Tuscobia Winter Ultra 2018 (85 mile run) a shorter version of the Arrowhead 135. This process is to acclimate me to the cold conditions and prepare me for the 135.
Arrowhead 135 Status 2018
The Arrowhead 135 is recognized in the book “The World’s Toughest Endurance Challenges” by Richard Hoad and Paul Moore as one of the 50 toughest races in the world. It is a human powered Ultra Marathon taking place in the coldest part of winter in the coldest city in the lower 48 states. Our average finish rate is less than 50%, the finish rate for new racers is much lower. 2014 finish rate was 35%.

Our team’s goal would be for me to cross the Grand Canyon Rim 7 times continuously and set a new world record.

I met Bill today in Salisbury, England at a train station waiting to go home on leave from the army. We ended up speaking to the very point we had to go our separate ways. He is a great guy and unique. The stories he told me had me in awe and left me amazed. Bill you are a fantastic character and it was a pleasure to have met you. Hopefully our paths cross again some day.
