On top of the world

I don't even want to run a marathon. My knees give out after 30 minutes on the cross-trainer. But I kind of sort of want to run THIS marathon. I wonder if I could do it.

It costs 11,900 euros, about $12,500 right now. For that, they fly you from & back to Svalbard (where I've long wanted to go) to the North Pole camp, put you up there for 2 or 3 days, and provide helicopter flights, professional photography, & (uh-oh) emergency medical evacuation insurance.

Would I do it?

Yesterday I wanted to walk from Tokyo to Kyoto on the historic Tokaido trail. I suppose it's just spring restlessness.
