Luis Escobar

Nearly one week has past since my pace crew and I stepped across the Badwater 135 finish line. As you know, Tyler Tajima was a valued member of that group. The race starts in Death Valley and finishes 135 miles, 3 large valleys and 3 mountain ranges away. The day time air temps reached well over 130 degrees! Hotter than a firecracker. The heat took it's toll on all of us. Our finish time was 36 hours and 45 minutes, 13th. place over all. They say that Badwater is the "Toughest footrace in the world" Well, I have not yet run all of the footraces in the world - but I can tell you that it is the toughest footracr that I have ever seen. Thank you Tyler for all of you help during the race. I hope to see all of you in January for the 100. Aloha, Luis Escobar

contrary master blogger; Tyler Tajima, former Pac Five runner, current coach and HURT pacer for many a year is pacing Luis Escobar as we speak. We've told Tyler many times that he is going to die in the heat and have asked him to create his will before he left. Go Tyler!
