My name is Dean. I'm running the 2012 Antarctica Marathon to raise money for conservation and penguins!

Penguin sighted on streets of Columbia!

November 5th, 2011

Things went well today! I got up on the right side of the bed, er, nest today and had a good run at the Governor’s Cup half marathon…

I wore the penguin costume the whole way (hotter than Columbia in August) and started in last place, asking folk to pledge support to penguin conservation based on the number of runners I beat in the race.

Well, I was fortunate to come in 187th place with a time of 1:48:37. There were 691 runners in the field. I caught 504 of them. My apologies to the guy at mile 11. Really, I couldn’t see a thing in that outfit.

Anyway, I’m pretty sure I came in first in the “Flightless Aquatic Foul” division.

Donations most welcome. The penguins will appreciate you, and so will I!
