I am the 0.045%

According to a February 2012 Outside magazine article there were only 140,000 runners that completed two or more marathons in 2010. Assuming that it was the same in 2011 I was one of the few in a population of more than 312 million that completed multiple marathons. I ran the Green Bay marathon in May and the New York City Marathon in November.

Right now I only have plans for one 2012 marathon, but since I love being weird (check out [amazon-product text=”We are all Weird” type=”text”]1936719223[/amazon-product]¬†on Amazon) I might start planning to run a second.
