Dean is running the 2012 Antarctica Marathon to promote fitness and raise money for penguin conservation!


I’ve already decided to run the antarctica Marathon, I may as well do a bunch of other outlandish things to promote my cause:

Saturday, December 10th

Running with Penguins at Riverbanks Zoo!

I’ll literally run with the penguins at the excellent Riverbanks Zoo! I’ll run on a treadmill from morning until night right in the penguin exhibit! I should net about 50 miles in one day! YEAH!

There will be family activities, presentations and lots of amazing and fun learning about these cute, cuddly birds. Can’t wait!

WIS TV comments on my preparation for the event!

South Carolina vs. Florida Football Game

Team deanguin will be running the coolest concession area in Williams-Bryce Stadium, home to over 80,000 rabid Gamecock fans!

Governor’s Cup 1/2 Marathon

I’ll be running the hilly Governor’s Cup 1/2 Marathon in full, sweltering penguin costume. Come cheer me on as I draw attention to the causes of physical fitness and penguin conservation!

I’m starting purposefully in last place.
Never said I was the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Donate based on how many runners I beat!
I challenge you to donate based on the final race results. Please consider a donation for every runner that I vanquish.

How Did I do?
I finished in 1:48:37, passing 504 runners! Yikes! Read all about it (and watch video)!
