Lisa and Crew Reach the Summit of Mt Whitney

Hello - GREAT news!

We just received word that Lisa and her three crew members (Marshall, George & Jackie) reached the Mt Whitney summit at 9pm Pacific this evening.

Lisa is giving new meaning to the term BADWATER DOUBLE - she's a champ.

Stay tuned for details of their ascent (and descent).

Thanks for all your kind words. I have been passing these wishes onto Lisa verbally when I see her. She loves them!

"... Perhaps the genius of ultrarunning is its supreme lack of utility. It makes no sense in a world of space ships and supercomputers to run vast distances on foot. There is no money in it and no fame, frequently not even the approval of peers. But as poets, apostles and philosophers have insisted from the dawn of time, there is more to life than logic and common sense. The ultra runners know this instinctively. And they know something else that is lost on the sedentary. They understand, perhaps better than anyone, that the doors to the spirit will swing open with physical effort. In running such long and taxing distances they answer a call from the deepest realms of their being -- a call that asks who they are..." and Lisa - you are an absolute star!!!

Lisa- i am glued to following your journey...up until now i have always thought the strong & determined climb to the top and bask in their accomplishment...which is a lie. the truely strong and determined nearly climb to the peak, venture back down at least once to make the journey a bit more exciting & challenging, and then proceed to the give meaning to 'joy in the journey'. praying for you & your crew
