Mark ZuckerbergMark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s owner, recently published a post with his newest idea for the new year. After the success of 2015 ”A Year of Books”, it is now time to tie up our shoes and start running: 2016 will be the year of “A Year of Running”.

As Mark announced, it will be about running 365 miles in a year, but probably he forgot that 2016 will be a leap year!

The distance looks huge but, in truth, it is only about running 1 mile per day, precisely 1609.344 meters, just a little bit more than 1.5 km which, according to Mark, will not require more than 10 minutes per day with a quiet pace.

Moreover, a group has been created to share one’s own experiences and periodically posting one’s improvements.

Here is the link to the Facebook group

This is an initiative born under the idea of having a healthy 2016!

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…
