Paul Ruesch - USA

   Paul became interested in marathons after running the Chicago
   Marathon in 1994. Inspired by the energy of the event, fascinating
   people, and wonderful places, he went on to complete marathons
   on all seven continents by the year 2000. 

   Paul raced penguins down a glacier and skillfully dodged a
   territorial (and slightly agitated) walrus in Antarctica. His longest
   run (by accident) was the Himalayan Stage Race when, having
   gone to India to run the Everest Challenge Marathon, he was
   surprised to learn that the marathon was actually stage 3 of a 5
   day loop. 

   Paul has had a number of truly unique marathon experiences.
   Clad in a Chicago Bulls basketball uniform, he joined the French in
   drinking dozens of glasses of wine while dribbling and passing a
   basketball back and forth with a friend during the Medoc
   Marathon. In New Zealand, after a night of drinking on New Year's
   Eve, instead of going home to sleep off a hangover, he ran the
   Millennium Marathon at daybreak. Meanwhile, in Africa he was
   nearly lapped by the Tanzanian Olympic Running Team in the Mt.
   Kilimanjaro marathon a day after descending from the mountain.
   Most recently, Paul outran Maoist insurgents down from the Mt.
   Everest Base Camp well behind seasoned Nepali runners who
   finished in half the time. 

   Paul runs the North Pole Marathon on the day before his 34th
   birthday and says he is relieved that there are no locals at the
   North Pole to make him look bad. We advise him that the polar
   bears are quick!
