Fitness: How many marathons did YOU run last year?

If the answer is less than 366, then Annette Fredskov of Næstved, Denmark might think you’re a slacker.

According to the Copenhagen Post, 41-year-old  Fredskov just completed a full year in which she ran a full marathon every single day.

That’s except for the 365th day … when she ran 2 marathons back-to-back …  to up her total to 366.

She averaged about 11 minutes per mile for the 9,589 miles.

Here’s the really interesting part of her story …

 

Fredskov, who describes herself  as “a normal woman, mother and wife”, was diagnosed with MS three years ago.

But rather than let that get her down, Fredskov decided to see if she could outrun the disease.

“Three years ago, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and today I have – without any medication – no problems or symptoms of MS.

I believe that running marathons has played a large role in the fact that I am healthy today.

Marathons are the best things that have happened for my body and soul.”

Now, all of you,  lace ‘em up and get out there …
