Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Vows to Run At Least 365 Miles in 2016
Not content with challenging himself, Mark Zuckerberg has challenged his billion plus Facebook users; he wants them to run a mile a day or 365 in a year.
In a Facebook post shared on Monday, Zuckerberg said he is going to run 365 miles this year and wants others to join him. Referring to his 2015 challenge, Zuckerberg announced creation of a public group similar to the one set up last year.
"We'll call this year's challenge A Year of Running. I've set up a public group where we can all discuss our running adventures and I'll post periodically on my progress. This is a lot of running, but it's not a crazy amount. It's a mile a day, and at a moderate pace it's less than 10 minutes of running per day," Zuckerberg said.
The post had a picture of Zuckerberg running on the streets of Delhi from last year.
Mashable picked on Zuckerberg's photo to mention that his heel first running posture and the claim that a mile can be run under less than 10 minutes are incorrect.
The running challenge is Zuckerberg's second this year. Through a post on Sunday, Zuckerberg informed that he wants to build an AI personal assistant, like Iron Man's Jarvis, TIME reports. In less than a day, 'A Year of Running' group had amassed over 40,000 members.
