New Year, New Adventures

Posted by Coach Jenny Hadfield on Jan 3, 2008 12:43:36 PM

Here's to a year full of happy miles and plenty of smiles. I am looking forward to getting back on the trails this Spring and perhaps even tackling another Ultra Marathon or two this year.  But before I can dream about what Spring and Summer may bring, I have to focus on the next two months and the adventures ahead...


Next weekend I am running the 15th Anniversary Disney Marathon with my brother Scott. He's trained hard and it will be his first so it should be a fun journey.  The last time we explored Disneyworld together we were knee-high to a grasshopper and there was only ONE theme park there.  I know, I am dating myself... 



The following weekend our team from Chicago Endurance Sports is running the Cabo San Lucas Half Marathon. I know, it is a tough job but someone has to do it:) Then at the end of February my husband John and I are staff and crew for the Antarctica Marathon Expedition. The trip down there is adventure enough!  I put together a slide show from last year's race so you can see how hard the course is.   A brutal course filled with off-road hills, two 17% glacier climbs for 3/4 mile and mud or snow that can reach up to your knees at times!  Two hundred runners travel from all over the world to tackle the last continent.  Most finish, but everyone comes away with a pocket full of humility and a life-changing story.  









I am grateful to have so many adventures this season. It's what keeps life interesting for me!


Here's to your next adventure.  What is YOUR next adventure?
