Eleng an ouni Hëllefsmëttel queesch duerch d'Antarktis wanderen, dorop hunn net vill Leit Loscht. An awer probéieren der et ëmmer erëm. Eréischt 2016 war e briteschen Offizéier dobäi ëm d'Liewe komm, wéi e probéiert huet d'Äiswüst eemol komplett ze duerchwanderen.

Day 54: FINISH LINE!!! I did it! The Impossible First ✅. 32 hours and 30 minutes after leaving my last camp early Christmas morning, I covered the remaining ~80 miles in one continuous “Antarctica Ultramarathon” push to the finish line. The wooden post in the background of this picture marks the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf, where Antarctica’s land mass ends and the sea ice begins. As I pulled my sled over this invisible line, I accomplished my goal: to become the first person in history to traverse the continent of Antarctica coast to coast solo, unsupported and unaided. While the last 32 hours were some of the most challenging hours of my life, they have quite honestly been some of the best moments I have ever experienced. I was locked in a deep flow state the entire time, equally focused on the end goal, while allowing my mind to recount the profound lessons of this journey. I’m delirious writing this as I haven’t slept yet. There is so much to process and integrate and there will be many more posts to acknowledge the incredible group of people who supported this project. But for now, I want to simply recognize my #1 who I, of course, called immediately upon finishing. I burst into tears making this call. I was never alone out there. @jennabesaw you walked every step with me and guided me with your courage and strength. WE DID IT!! We turned our dream into reality and proved that The Impossible First is indeed possible. “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” - Nelson Mandela. #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible

Eleng, ouni Hëllefsmëttel a mat 180-Kilo-Schlitt

Schonn tëscht 1996 an 1997 hat den Norweger Borge Ousland dat gepackt. Ma deen hat sech awer deelweis vun enger Zort Paraglider zéie gelooss. Den Extremsportler Colin O'Brady huet dëst awer elo komplett ouni Hëllefsmëttel gepackt. Op Laanglaf-Skien a mat engem 180 Kilo schwéiere Schlitt, deen en hannert sech hir gezunn huet, ass hien den Donneschdeg un d'Zil komm.

An da dat no 54 Deeg an 1'482 Kilometer. De Profi-Athlet war den 3. November gestart, den 12. Dezember hat hien no 40 Deeg de Südpol erreecht.

Day 50: STRUNG OUT BUT STILL MOVING. I can’t believe I been out here all alone for 50 days. Even having lived it, I can’t quite wrap my mind around it. This wind storm still has not subsided so I spent another day getting beat down. Fingers crossed I catch a break on the weather soon. I’ve been writing a lot about the mental game as it’s clearly the most crucial part of this challenge (or any challenge for that matter). However today I want to honor my body and health. I wholeheartedly believe that nothing in life is more important that being healthy. Without that it’s hard to do or do fully. I’m so fortunate to have parents that instilled that in me from a young age, teaching me the importance of healthy eating and exercise. My dad is an organic farmer so I guess you could say it’s in my blood. Despite feeling exhausted and worn out, I’m grateful for having lived a healthy lifestyle, for without that I’m certain my body would have given up by now. And on the health front, I’m glad to be partnered with @Grandrounds who go above and beyond to guide people to the highest quality healthcare. It’s incredible to know they provide access to medical expertise literally anywhere on the planet! #GrandRounds #TheImpossibleFirst #BePossible

125 Kilometer bannent 32 Stonnen

Am ustrengendste mussen awer déi leschten 2 Deeg gewiescht sinn. Déi leschten 125 Kilometer huet hien nämlech dunn einfach an engem Rëtsch gemaach. An dat muss effektiv richteg ustrengend gewiescht sinn, wann ee bedenkt, wat den 33-Järegen nach fir Gepäck hannert sech hir geschleeft huet. Déi 125 Kilometer huet hien du bannent 32 Stonne gemaach. Dat war u sech guer net esou geplangt gewiescht, d'Iddi fir dëse leschte „Sprint“ war him den Dag selwer beim Mueresiesse komm.

An op Instagram huet den O'Brady geschriwwen, dass dëst lescht 32 Stonnen zwar déi ustrengendst ma och déi schéinst vu sengem Liewe gewiescht wieren.
