Bluffton Polar Bear Run: 22.35 5k

OK, so I’m from New York – the Catskill Mountains (Hudson Valley now).  The concept of running a race called the “Polar Bear Run” sounds intimidating.  However, when you run on January 1 in Hilton Head (Bluffton, SC) to be precise, it’s not exactly freezing cold.

It was a bit rainy though, which makes it slippery.  I was able to finish 2nd in my age group and was given a nice Christmas Tree ornament.  Hilton Head is a great running and biking community and I encourage you to visit it if you get a chance.

Living in the Hudson Valley of New York State, at age 40 (almost 41), I had a health scare and had to make serious changes in my eating and exercise habits. This is the story of how, I went from Morbidly Obese to being a Marathon Runner and ran 12 marathons in 12 months. After I ran several more, I did something I never imagined possible: I am an Ironman.
