Jon Paradowski has completed his hardest race yet. Jon was 20th male (22nd overall in the Run category) at the Arrowhead 135 in International Falls, Minnesota. His time was 52 hours, 59 minutes and 0 seconds. What didn't this race have? Distance - it's 135 freakin' MILES! Technical - it's a snowmobile trail filled with 14-24 inches of snow! Challenging weather - it was -10 degrees! Length - Two nights and three days! Support? - nope, no outside help is allowed, and you have to carry all your own supplies. Jon pulled a sled with his sleeping bag, pad and stove. Terrain - other runners talk about pulling the sled up countless hills and then having it bang into their legs on the downhills. What an achievement!
