North Pole Marathon this weekend… Rest day… Sunny Day! No running


Great day to not have to run… 0 degrees, sunny, calling for a high of 8 today… I’ll take it! Girlfriend is at spinning, don’t know how she can spin after an 18 mile run, but I guess she manages…

Saw on the internet today, 26 runners landed this morning in the North Pole to take part in the most Northerly marathon in the world, the North Pole Marathon… $16,000 entry fee, -25 degree temperatures and running around a 5k loop at the North Pole! Any Marathonian running  this weekend, be thankful its not this marathon….

Never knew of the Canadian Running News website, some interesting articles….

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Cheers

    Yea, that IS impressive that she can spin after an 18 mile run, I’m usually worthless after that kind of mileage.
    $16,000 entry fee? I’d rather buy a car!
