An Inspiring Picture

This is off topic, but I find this picture inspiring (click on figure to enlarge):

It is a picture of the Antarctica Marathon. Here is a description of the event:
The 11th Antarctica Marathon & Half-Marathon is scheduled for March 7, 2010. You will come face to face with icebergs, penguins, seals and whales while exploring the most pristine corner of the planet. Historians and scientists will provide lectures on board ship and wildlife excursions during landings in remote areas among seal colonies and penguin rookeries and at research bases.
I find these exotic marathons alluring and would one day love to do one or more. In addition to the Antarctica Marathon there is the Great Wall Marathon and Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon, among others. For now I will settle for the Houston Marathon and feel good about warding off lung and gastrointestinal cancer.
