Budzik to run for US in Berlin

Posted: Friday, July 25, 2014 12:10 am

Living in the flatlands of Friendswood doesn’t deter ultramarathoner Kim Budzik from heading for the hills. She recently finished her fourth consecutive Badwater ultramarathon, a 135-mile trek through California’s Sierra Nevada, in 46 hours and 50 minutes.

The race, which bills itself as the world’s toughest, ends partway up Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the continental U.S. The Badwater course logs 17,000 feet of cumulative elevation gain, a challenge Budzik trained for by running hill repeats on the Kemah Bridge.
