Surviving a 4000-Calorie Run (Eating, Not Burning)

Surviving a 4000-Calorie Run (Eating, Not Burning) – Brendan Leonard

Rating: ****

This article was very fascinating to read as it combined utter gluttony with loads of intense exercising.

This article is about two friends who have a crazy idea to run around New York eating a bunch of the best food around. It seemed like a really stupid idea but was really interesting in fact. The two friends consumed over 4000 calories in one day of eating and ran around New York many miles, including one nine mile run to a pizza place.

I really enjoyed reading about their crazy adventure because it shows that even if you want to eat a ton of fattening hot dogs and pizza that you can still be a really active person, as long as you put in the effort and have fun with it.
