A running friend of mine is celebrating her 40th birthday in style this weekend.
She was gifted a double marathon. And not just any ordinary torture of two marathons in a few days.
She flew from the US to Santiago, Chile then on to Puntas Arenas, Chile. On Monday she gets a flight to Antarctica where she will run the White Continent Marathon then fly back to Puntas Arenas.
She then gets to rest up a bit before she runs another Marathon in Puntas Arenas on Thursday 2/28.
Dude! She is knocking out two continents in one week! Plus she has run the US/North America. She has the goal of running all seven continents and getting Antarctica, well that would be the plum.
And I was happy to be checking off my Second Continent (Europe) and Second (Ireland) and Third (Scotland) countries this summer.
I am so jealous.
