Stefaan Engels now holds a new world's record for completing 365 marathons in as many days. That's more marathons in a single year than anyone else. Talk about nuts! This guy ran 9569 miles! That's like running through the center of the Earth and coming out on the other side and then running from New York to Salt Lake City. Engels said he approached his marathon marathon as if it were a job and everyday spent about four hours completing each race. Evidently, it was just a part-time job. I guess if nothing else this just proves how resilient and truly amazing our human bodies are (well maybe not mine, but somebody's). Go here for more about this feat.

Ellen - you had the image code inserted at the end of the text rather than at the beginning. I fixed it.

In the future, after you've loaded up your image and you're ready to insert it, make sure the cursor in the text page is at the beginning of the text.
