Start of Sea Voyage (March 7, 2009)

Pic taken on the deck of the ship Akademik Sergey Vavilov before our departure from Ushuaia (oo-shwhy-uh). One of the other runners on board, Bob, put together a crazy trip for himself: run the Antarctica Marathon and then three weeks later run a marathon at the North Pole. He collected some corporate sponsorships, including one from Travelocity. So that's me posing with the Travelocity Roaming Gnome that they supplied to Bob.
As the background view hints, Ushuaia does have some great scenery.
(BTW, I was unsure what to label this post - clear failure of gnomenclature.)
