Cool site commemorating the 100 anniversary of reaching the South Pole
As I am 5 hours from flying out of Los Angeles, I wanted to share this neat site: http://raceforthepole.com/. The site is updating live as if the Sir Robert F. Scott expedition to the South Pole were happening now. This is in fact the 100th anniversary of the race between Roald Amundsen and Scott. Amundsen reached first and returned safely home; Scott tragically died ever so close to a supply depot.
I'll be talking more about this race as I lead up to my own race in February 28.
