Nationals VP Gregory McCarthy to run in Antarctic Ice Marathon


Yes, you read that right. He will finish his goal of running a marathon on all seven continents if he completes tomorrow's (Sat., Dec. 12) Antarctic Ice Marathon. It's the southernmost marathon event in the world. The Washington Post had a feature article about him in Friday's paper, on the front page in fact.

I take extra interest in this story since I'm a fan of both the Nats and a new participant in endurance sports (triathlon and some shorter running races). And a resident of the Washington area. McCarthy could be the first true Washingtonian to run a marathon on all seven continents.

The president of the Florida Marlins finished the Ironman World Championship race in Kona, Hawaii, an impressive feat. (Despite the Marlins being a division rival, I have to give the guy his well-deserved due for that.) If McCarthy can finish the Antarctic Ice Marathon tomorrow, will he be the biggest bad-a$$ baseball executive in the major leagues? Hard to say, but if he finishes, all Nats fans should start boasting about him. Hey, we need something to boast about.
