On 8/8/06, while in excellent shape (I ran the New Mexico Marathon on 9/3/06), I somehow convinced myself that it would be a fun idea to run the North Pole Marathon. By the end of December, I realized that there was no way I’d be able to maintain the level of training necessary to do it. I also realized that I’d taken leave of my senses in August when I signed up for this.
I’d paid for everything so I decided that – in conjunction with YourRunning.com – I would give away my entry. Today we’ve announced that Bobby Bostic is the winner of our contest and will be running the North Pole Marathon in April.

There were 65 incredible entrants with awesome stories. I’m blown away – and inspired – by the fitness level and accomplishment of these folks. Congrats Bobby. Time for my run.
