The Storm

When we arrived at King George Island, the actual site of the marathon, the rough seas and heavy winds prevented us from getting the advance team off the ship to mark the course.

There was no dock. The team would have to be transported by Zodiac, the small inflatable boats used to get from the ship to the shore.

Penguin Wisdom
Being an athlete means living in a state of constant evaluation. The athlete exchanges criticism for assessment. There are no bad runs or races, only episodes and events to be considered. %% I've learned that the 1ine between honest effort and complete exhaustion keeps moving. My first run wasn't even a quarter of a mile. Now I can run a marathon and feel great.
