Antarctica Marathon Race Report: Goat South, Young Man!
One afternoon, midway through our trip, I joined other passengers on the deck of the Akademik Ioffe and watched amazed as humpback whales played in the water below. There were two or three alongside the ship, each a good 20 feet long, and dozens more spread...

Southbound
As I and my traveling companions, Lindi Rosner and Debra Kaufman, prepare to board the flight tonight that will begin our trip to Antarctica, I am fixated on what a novel experience it is to visit the southern continent. The first confirmed sighting of the ...

A Long, Strange Trip
When I first began running, my friend, Angela Brunson,
shared with me a wise maxim for choosing races: “Never sign up for an event where
you’ll spend more time getting there, than on the course itself.” In other
words, a 10K that’s an hour’s drive from home...

English, Chinese, Japanese and Russian runners took part in the Baikal Ice
Marathon. There may have been other Americans in the race, but I didn’t meet
any. About a th...

A Bowl of Uhka at the Steam Bath
This morning after listening to a lecture on the aerobics of
running from our guide Arkadiy, my Ice Marathon mates and I attempted to put
theory into practice by making another assault on Lake Baikal. Yesterday

My 44-Hour Day
My trip to Siberia began spasmodically. I made an error when
I applied for a Russian visa in January, noting my date of arrival as March 2,
the day I was scheduled to land in Irkutsk. I failed to consider my stopover in
Moscow, which would happen a day earl...

Khius and Kolobovniks
I bought a copy of Russian
for Dummies and have been boning up on simple phrases that may come in
handy when I run the Baikal Ice Marathon next month. Доброе утро, товарищ! Это великолепный день в
России-матушке! Good morning, comrade!
It is a glorious day ...

On to Siberia
Every now and again, you’ve got to s***-can the straight and
narrow, say lah-de-dah to your worldly
responsibilities and do something hare-brained, off kilter  and fun.   Two years ago, I traveled halfway around the world to take

The Good Wife
No doubt the most astonishing fact of my upcoming trip to
Yellowknife for the Frostbite 50 is the decision by my wife, Lindi Rosner (a virtually-born-and-bred,
flip-on-the-heat-when-it-dips-below-68-degrees, Southern California girl) to tag
along. Lindi has...
