The Badwater 135-mile Ultramarathon was held last week, starting in Death Valley and going all the way to Mount Whitney (though not to the very top). The people who compete in this race are insane. You have to have completed a 100-mile race just to be considered for the ultramarathon, and they turn away tons of people.

Here's the recap from this year's race. The fastest men's time of 22 hours and 51 minutes comes out to running 135 ten-minute miles. I can't imagine you'd be up for a pizza party after running for 24 straight hours. ben
