And no, this actually has nothing to do with 7 Marathons on 7 Continents in 7 Days aside from the fact that I’ve come to realize 7 is a magical number for me!
Back in February when I made the announcement I was taking on the World Marathon Challenge in 2018, I mentioned that my Grandmother was a huge inspiration to me and unknowingly led me down the path of running. But I didn’t really elaborate on how that came about.
A little over a year and a half ago I remember sitting around talking with my family during our annual beach vacation telling them I had a crazy idea about running a Marathon in Antarctica. I didn’t think they thought too much of it because I have a bit of a reputation of coming up with crazy running adventures.
