Death Valley --> New Orleans
(pic: courtesy of Ben Jones, who was right that this would be blogged! Tim Kj called it the "Badwater Baptism.")
Just a quick note to say I survived four days of training in Death Valley. It was quite a fun time and I'm sure it will be beneficial to my race. I don't have time to write about the training, but here is a link to my pictures for some details. Also, here is a link to Ben's pictures.
I am in New Orleans at the ACSM conference now. The Ultrarunning presentation was this afternoon and went well. We had our Endurance Special Interest Group tonight too. There were several new members who were also ultrarunners there tonight. Our numbers are growing! I am now elected Chairperson for that group, which is a delight to me.

It is pouring rain and chilly here (compared to Death Valley), so I will lose my precious heat training over the next few days. Oh well, can do only what we can do! I wouldn't miss this meeting for anything. So much good stuff!
