Milton resident Kevin Wilson’s first run after recovering from COVID-19 was a four mile run in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Wilson’s second? A half marathon in Antarctica. By day Wilson is a police officer in Burlington, but for the past fifteen years he has been an avid runner, starting in his late 20s with the goal of completing a half marathon by the end of that year and never looking back. On Jan. 28, Wilson had a dream come true when he stepped onto the cold, barren ground of King George Island in Antarctica.
