Man Runs 365 Marathons in One Year

Stefaan Engels, 49, a Belgian runner, completed one marathon per day over the course of a year to set a new world record.

He said he took on the incredible challenge as an example to others.  ‘After running 20 triathlons in one year, I was not ready to go back to normal life,’ he said. ‘I also wanted to inspire people by showing that if I could run a marathon a day for an entire year, that anyone could run or bike a little each day or do something about their weight problem.’

He averaged four hours per marathon and ran a total of 9,569 miles over the year. Oh and he has asthma. Fucking overachievers.
