Philly 9-Year-Old To Run Antarctic Marathon, Making Your Life Pretty Much a Failure
One of these days, I’m going to get around to losing some weight, maybe even start training for a 5K. Today, I’d rather get a sandwich and cozy up with a good book. Why not?
There are plenty of 9-year-olds who go out running with their dads, maybe a few who run marathons. But there is only one 9-year-old we know of who is about to run a marathon in Antarctica.
Meet Nikolas Toocheck, who lives near West Chester.
“I just think it’s really cool and I’m really excited and I want to meet a penguin,” Nikolas said.
Nikolas and his dad leave for Antarctica Friday, the race is Monday, and the expected temperature is about 35 degrees.
