A 5K race in Antarctica

One of our members, Omar Marcillo, is currently at McMurdo station in Antarctica. They have a tradition there of running a 5K race on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. He writes:

"It was not as good as I expected my time was 30m16s, in the first part of the race I was flying, once i touched the ice, my throat was drier and drier so I ended almost walking. Anyway, the scenery was awesome running on frozen ocean, with glaciers around you, it was quite an experience..."

Hopefully he'll send us a picture.
