Sarah Ames Finishes North Pole Marathon

One of our favorite and most helpful lawyers here in Chicago recently finished the marathon at the North Pole. This gave her the distinction of becoming the first German woman to run a marathon on all 7 continents and the North Pole. It was an amazing trip to Spitsbergen, Camp Barneo and the North Pole. She spent three days at Camp Barneo, which was just 26 miles/42km from the North Pole (give and take a few miles since it is a camp drifting on ice). She had 24 hours of mesmerizing sunlight and beautiful ice sculptures all along the way. She also had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to raise Chicago’s 2016 Olympic Bid Flag at the North Pole.

Sarah has posted some videos she took at http://www.youtube.com/user/sarah40416.
