"It took Lisa only a few weeks to understand who I was and to prepare me, a novice who had never ran longer than 13 miles, to finish 100 miles in under 24 hours with only 6 weeks of training, and finish Badwater after a ruptured appendix and 9 months of training."

 

Lisa Understood Me Quickly

Initially I was concerned that Lisa would not "get to know me" and my strengths and weaknesses over the internet. I am more of an in-person type of person. I was wrong. It took Lisa only a few weeks to understand who I was and to prepare me, a novice who had never ran longer than 13 miles, to finish 100 miles in under 24 hours with only 6 weeks of training, and finish Badwater after a ruptured appendix and 9 months of training. She is the absolute best! Feel free to email or call me at 561.274.9696 and I would be happy to tell you more about Lisa.

 

My Professional Challenges

While I have learned to never say never, my "Everest" or next challenge involves creating the first 9 figure spec home in the world. This would be a home with a value in excess of $100 million. This will take many years to create, with each day presenting a different challenge. I also have my 2nd book coming out at the end of the year titled Frank McKinney's Maverick Approach To Real Estate Success -How You Can Go from a $50,000 Fixer-Upper to a $100 Million Mansion. This book is behind schedule and the publisher is not happy. Once it is released, we plan a 20-city bus tour that will take me away from home for over 2 months. These represent firsts for me, like Badwater.

 

BADWATER!

You see, I had a dream to finish Badwater. A dream that consumed my every thought for an entire year. As I have always said, I feel most alive experiencing extremes found in first-time experiences. There is nothing like experiencing something extreme for the first time. It makes me feel so alive. Once done, it is time to move onto a new first time experience. The sport of ultra running was a means to that dream, Badwater.

 

I can't tell you how meaningful Badwater has been for me. Lisa and her husband, Jay, made my dream come true. There will be no race that can compare. I run for the experience associated, not for the sport.  

 

The Future

I now look forward to growing our friendship. Besides the experience of Badwater, the best thing to come of this pursuit has been the friendship we have begun with Lisa and Jay. Nilsa and I love you both. It goes so much deeper than running or Badwater. This friendship experience is something that we will cherish as each day passes.
