So how do you train to run 7 Marathons, on 7 Continents in 7 Days? I’ve been asking myself this question for the better part of a year now! And certainly I’m not talking only the physical aspects. There is a significant mental hurdle to overcome running the Marathon distance, then sitting on a plane for several hours en route to the next Continent, with the possibility of significant environmental differences and potentially little in the way of sleep or recovery.
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.
