Run the New York City Marathon in 5 Minutes
The winning time at the New York City Marathon on Sunday was two hours and five minutes. How about shaving two hours off of that and running the whole thing in just about five minutes? Now you can, and not even leave your chair.
Runner Gwen Schroeder ran this year's race with a camera strapped to her head and took a photo every minute. She then strung those together and added some music and some drama so you can see just what it's like to push your body to its limit. And then you can get up, go get some pita chips, sit back down, and forget all about going to the gym. Who actually wants to run the damn race when you can just watch it and then go watch the last three episodes of Terra Nova on your DVR? Thanks for doing the work for us, Gwen!
