Having Spent The Night At The Airport In Brussels Last Week, I Am Proud To Now Call Myself A Belgian

This guy ran over 10,000 miles last year.

BELGIAN runner Stefaan Engels set a world record after crossing the finish line of his 365th marathon in as many days yesterday.

Engels, dubbed the “Marathon Man”, began the extreme physical challenge a year ago in Barcelona.

He competed a race a day in seven countries: Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Canada, Mexico, Britain and the US.

Engels said that he did it as a personal challenge and to be an example for others.

“After running 20 triathlons in one year, I was not ready to go back to normal life,” he said. “I also wanted to inspire people by showing that if I could run a marathon a day for an entire year, that anyone could run or bike a little each day or do something about their weight problem.”
