joshuaholmes Ran into this amazing street art graffiti of Robin Williams, as Mork, across from The Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard last night after leaving the gym. It made me smile. #robinwilliams #mork #riprobinwilliams #laughfactory #losangeles #sunsetblvd #hollywood #comedian #comedy #art #graffiti #streetart 4d

joshuaholmes The sauna, like an ultra/running, is enjoyable at first and then evolves into a mental game of endurance and survival towards the end goal. Badwater 135 in 4 days. #RunItFast #badwater135 #badwater #sauna 4d

joshuaholmes Sauna was about 190 deg when I got in tonight before settling around 180. Pretty good, hot session. Cold shower to conclude before leaving gym. #badwater135 #badwater #RunItFast 4d

joshuaholmes The Vermont Trail 100 is unique in that you share the 100 mile course with a horse ride going on at the same time.. With the rain and chaotic weather it made for a very sloppy and slippery trail at times. #RunItFast #VT100 #SlamWater #GrandSlam #Vermont #trail #running 6d

joshuaholmes Vermont 100 had a bit of many types of weather throughout the day. This was I think about 25 miles into the race. #RunItFast #SlamWater #VT100 #vermont 7d

  •   _emilyannette_ Love VT!!! 1w
  •   stampedshop Best Pics 1w
  •   medarmygal Nice 1w
  •   canalettodue Good luck on the slam if you are doing it! Leadville is the key!! 1w
  •   joshuaholmes @canalettodue slam + Badwater. Thanks for the well wishes. Appreciate any advice 7d
  •   canalettodue @joshuaholmes if you are doing slam plus badwater, you are far beyond advice! "Enjoy". @dirtdiva33 might have some words of wisdom! 6d
  •   dirtdiva33 @canalettodue @joshuaholmes doesn't need any advice yes Leadville is the hard one and takes most slammers out. I have paced 2 different slammers who both Tan sub 24 at WST and Vermont barely finishing Leadville only because I wouldn't let them quit. 6d
  •   dirtdiva33 @joshuaholmes Wasatch 100 is no walk in the park I've finished 7 mimes with 2 DNFs I will see you at Badwater yay! I will also see you at Wasatch where I'm going for #8 6d

joshuaholmes Vermont Trail 100 Mile Endurance buckle for finishing in less than 24 hours (23:11:36). On to the next episode. 32nd 100+ mile finish, 50+ total buckles (some races have given for less than 100). #RunItFast #VT100 #Vermont #SlamWater 1w

joshuaholmes Finished Vermont Trail 100 in 23:11 earning a buckle (just sub 24 at VT gets buckle, dumb). 15,400 ft gain, 15,400 ft loss. Rainy, humid nasty. Chaffed and heat rashes all over my body. Trail sections were so bad with shoe sucking mud and slippery. Horses doing the 100 mi (same time) destroyed the trail. Enough jeep roads in last 20mi to pull it in under 24. 2nd race of #GrandSlam and #SlamWater. #Badwater135 in 9 days. #RunItFast 1w
