365 Marathons in 365 Days

No, that’s not a goal I’m setting for myself!  I caught this interview on NPR and as someone who runs (maybe jog is a better word?) somewhat regularly, I was amazed to say the least!  I have one marathon under my belt and multiple mini-marathons, but this is nothing short of crazy! 

However, with obesity rates in the U.S. ranking among the highest in the world (66% of adults overweight, 33% of adults qualify as obese, 30% of children are overweight or obese, $215 billion per year for medical and productivity costs related to obesity, etc., etc.), we should take any inspiration we can get to start moving!
