Six continents, six days

Laura is a school teacher in Sioux Falls, the daughter of Albert and Pam Raeder of Watertown. Laura was one of 35 individuals to participate in the “Triple 7 Quest.” They ran their first marathon in Melbourne, Australia Feb. 8, then ran a marathon each consecutive day after that in Abu Dhabi; Paris, France; Tunisia; New York and then Chile. She was planning to run a seventh marathon the seventh day at King George Island (in Antarctica) but weather issues forced the plane to turn back. After waiting three days, she decided to return home. The other runners completed the seventh leg of the trip two days later.
