Despite his calves being “trashed” from slipping along the ice for the entire Antarctica marathon, Ryan surprised us with a 3:06:033 marathon less than 24 hours later (Check out his splits from his Fitbit Surge)!  The race was run entirely on concrete, but fortunately he was wearing his ASICS M 33s for extra cushion (and from the 50 extra lbs. he’s carrying around!)
