WSYR’s Bob Lonsberry Talks Badwater with OneAverageRunner

Two days after the 2012 Badwater 135 Ultra, Tim Hardy looks out over the valley from the roadside on the way up to Whitney Portal. Click here to see more from the race. (Doug Hardy photo)

We’re all back from Death Valley and are busy again with our jobs and families, but the memory of 135 miles from Badwater Basin to Whitney Portal are still fresh. We’ll have more to say as we catch up on work and such, but OneAverageRunner Tim Hardy was on the radio in the Syracuse region today for an interview with marathoner/radio host Bob Lonsberry of WSYR.

As you might expect, Bob starts out thinking what most folks think when they hear about Badwater for the first time (are you nuts?), and suggests a single marathon at 26.2 miles is bad enough, but 26.3 miles and onward is out of the question. But by the time the interview is over he clearly starts to think that it’s possible.

Thanks, Bob, and WSYR FM 106.9-AM 570 for giving Tim a chance to talk about the Badwater 135.

If I can find the interview on the station’s website, we will certainly link to it there. The station uses the iHeartRadio app to stream live here.

    Hello Tim,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back if you indeed decide to do so… (#FYI I do RT’s for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners & #Marathoners who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned…)

    All the very best to you and yours for the rest of 2012 and beyond Tim. Look forward to hearing from you…
