McMurdo Marathon

Today we had the McMurdo Marathon, Half Marathon and the VMF sponsored 1/4 Marathon. THe VMF marches to to a different tune. It was quite a race run from the LDB transition to Pegasus field and all the way back for the marathoners. I'm pretty impressed with the finishing times. Apparently it takes a tough mofo to come down to Antarctica and an even tougher to decide to run the Marathon. I volunteered to take pictures and stayed for all the run and ski finishers, all but one person finished in under 6 hours. Impressive. Most of them were under or just over 4 hours.
