How I run 8 marathons on 8 continents

"..Do something big..." Thoughts raced as I carefully measured each foot strike, careful to stay within bounds of the road, away from Afghan minefields and maybe a sniper's scope. This at 5000 feet above sea level, as I gasped for air like a smoker whose lungs screech for every breath.
"Bigger than yourself, go back to your past and spring forward to the future..." More thoughts that bugged me like desert flies. In Iraq now, different place, same conditions.
Funny how we go through life wondering "what if?" and never do. My ultimate dream is to begin again where I left off, but delayed. And along the way I'll meet new friends from different places...
Here starts my blog on my journey to accomplish what about 200 in the world of running have already done. I've finished 2 marathons on 2 continent already. So track my journey with 6 more to go.
Here is a partial list to go: China, Antarctica,Easter Island, and so forth...
Ending for now...
