"I ran the North Pole Marathon to support the National Black Marathoner Association. The North Pole Marathon is no easy feat. "The North Pole is run on Arctic ice floes, with 6 to 12 feet separating you from 12,000 feet of Arctic Ocean. Remember, this marathon is not run on land - it is run on water, frozen water, in the high Arctic.
"I don't think I have ever done anything so difficult. The last four kilometres were the hardest. I was seeing things that weren't there. It was -41C.
"I was cold. It was a hard race but I kept seeing the Nigerian flag and I knew I had to place it at the end of the race. I pushed for my country.
"I was in tears when I crossed the finished line. Another thing that really got me worried running the North Pole was my leg. "I have a bad leg and it requires me wearing special running shoes. I had to use brand new shoes for the race. It had spikes underneath it. But funny enough my legs were good. I believe so much that God was with me," concludes Morgan.
