Follow Our Progress at Badwater With These Tools

Hi all – I’m Tim’s brother, Doug, and will be on the support crew at Badwater with Greg Hardy and Dan Hartley to help keep Tim hydrated, fed, safe, and on a pace to finish next week.

We’re going to be using some new tools to provide updates on our progress, but I’d be lying if I said I was sure about how this will work since there are no cellphone towers or wifi access in Death Valley. We have set up a new Twitter account – @1averagerunner – and hopefully will be sending some updates through a some satellite-based gadget called SPOT Connect.

So click on the button below to follow Tim on Twitter or, if you just want to watch his feed through your browser you can visit here. His Twitter feed should also update his Facebook page, so if you’re following Tim on Facebook you should be kept up to date. We’re not sure exactly how it’s all going to work but check back to see what we’ve posted here for info.


Thanks!
