Jamie Donaldson Shatters Badwater Record

Jamie Donaldson tried last year, and what an amazing job she did - but shin-splints destroyed an otherwise dramatic run.

Pam Reed, one of the nicest people you could ever know, held onto her record for another year... but the writing was on the wall.

Badwater 2008 - Jamie went out strong and stayed strong.

Akos Konya and Jorge Pacheco battled for 1st, but Pacheco was too strong. Still, Konya held on for a strong 2nd.

Dean Karnazes held onto 3rd most of the race. As fast as Jamie was, running that fast, that late in the race, there really wasn't anything DK could do to defend himself. Jamie just ran away towards the 3rd place overall finish and a new record.
