The Coolest Marathon in the World

This week’s Motivation Monday is from the ‘Coolest’ Marathon in the World. By cool they mean cold….like -41 degrees Fahrenheit. The marathon takes place at the North Pole, on ice that is 6-12 feet thick.

People are wild.

We must be in an extreme marathon mode because last week’s #motivationmonday was from the Volcano Marathon and the week before was the southernmost marathon  in the world.  The videos might not actually motivate anyone to want to run these crazy marathons but they are pretty awesome so that’s good enough.
