The email and txt read, “URGENT TRAVEL ALERT. POSTPONED”. I was zipping up the suitcase and about to head to LAX.   The 2013 Antarctica Marathon was put on hold?  What?!!  Most of us had been on a waiting list for three to four years. No regard, our ship had hit an iceberg requiring it be  towed back to Russia for repairs.  We would have to wait until the end of the fully booked excursion season.  We would be one of the last boats out there before winter.  We would have to all totally rearrange out lives, rebook flights, and stayed trained, which we all seemed to know to do.

When Antarctica got postponed advice had been to bail…except for the two I knew whom already accomplished a marathon distance on Antarctica.  I heard a hallo sound in their voice as they both separately said, “Priceless.  There  is no price tag on the experience.  We cannot begin to describe to anyone what you can only fathom from being there in person. “  So I listened and looked like a desperate fool trying to change all those tickets and get events covered. BUT they would be right.  Antarctica did become that EPIC JOURNEY almost too deep for words.

Follow me as I try and take you where most never go.IMG_0785IMG_0779
