How Long is a Marathon [Infographic]

Posted on Jun 25, 2014 under run | No Comment

Watching my weight was never a concern, especially in high school. Running 40+ miles a week allowed us to eat full meals (appetizer, entree, dessert and 4-5 glasses of lemonade) without remorse. Of course, things change when you get older, I’ve spoken to colleagues who talk about how their metabolism basically flips like a light switch after a certain age (crossing my fingers that happens much later!). The following marathon infographic highlights what how many miles you’d need to run to burn off the calories associated to each item along with other activities that would equal running a marathon. Like I said, I’ve never been a calorie counter, but these stats are pretty interesting! Definitely makes you think twice when debating whether or not to have that extra slice of bacon 🙂
