Imaging running 26.2 miles as part of the London Marathon and than turning around and running home... except that home is 99 miles away.
That's exactly what Sam Robson did this past weekend in England.
According to Yahoo Sports : "He arrived to his home in St. Ives Cambs about 25 hours later, greeted by a cheering crowd. In total, he ran 125 miles in 29 hours, a pace of around 13 minutes per mile."
In the process he burned 15,000 calories and raised $5000 for charity.
"I had to have regular breaks to refill my water and whenever I stopped my legs seized up so I couldn't rest for long. In terms of tiredness, my legs felt pretty good and the worst bit was I had to keep eating to replace all the calories I was burning," a very tired and hungry Robson said.
