Don Kern, the race director for the Grand Rapids Marathon and one of my bootcamp coaches, is in Antarctica today. Running a marathon. It will be his seventh in 24 days. So far he’s run on the other six continents. If all goes according to plan, he’ll break the world record for running marathons on all seven continents in the shortest amount of time (he’s attempted before but weather foiled his flight plan).
I’m so excited, inspired and proud. And I’m so lucky to know this man personally.

This is the man himself at the South Pole on a previous trip:
