The greatest moment was when I carried the Marathon Flame from Greece and handed it to Race Director Richard Donovan. His polar races are something that will change your life forever.

My Antarctica trip with Polar Running Adventures was everything I wanted. It not only allowed me to go to Antarctica, but it also gave me a chance to get into the heart of the continent, stay on the ice, and really experience life there.

Richard’s North Pole race was a unique combination of two things I enjoy: polar challenges and marathon running. Best of all, I didn’t have to haul a sled there. A fantastic experience that I would highly recommend.

Thank you for opening new horizons for so many people, for giving us unforgettable memories and emotions in such unique locations on the planet.

Richard has unified the world through his races, with participants of different faiths and races, different statures in life, disabled or not. He reaffirmed in my heart that I can dream big and make it happen.
