Mark Zuckerberg promises to run 365 miles in 2016

Mark Zuckerberg is running a mile a day

You can add physical fitness awareness to the growing list of things Mark Zuckerberg has promised to do in 2016.

Less than a week after Facebook’s CEO promised to build his own AI personal assistant, he announced plans to run at least 365 miles over the course of the year.

“This is a lot of running, but it’s not a crazy amount,” he said. “It’s a mile a day, and at a moderate pace it’s less than 10 minutes of running per day.”

Zuckerberg is calling the challenge, “A Year of Running,” and said he will post updates on his progress in a Facebook group.

I have a physical challenge for 2016 as well.I’m going to run 365 miles and I’d love for as many people in this…
