When the Washington Post last checked on Frank Fumich, the 44-year-old Arlington native and Spartan Death Race survivor was completing the Virginia Triple Iron Triathlon in 48:03, good for sixth place. (That’s 48 hours and three minutes, for three consecutive Ironman triathlons.)

It was 25 degrees below zero at the top of the world, Fumich reports, but the group had nearly 24 hours of light each day. Fumich raised about $1,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. Check out a video on the expedition.
