Q: What's better than the Boston Marathon?
Km: Running 26.2 miles on a treadmill in Boston during the expo. Wait... no... that's not right... that sounds like an awful idea. Well, someone better tell that to Michael Wardian and Kim Duclos, because that's exactly what they're doing. Why? To break a world record (in Michael's case... someone "stole" it from him last year) and to bring one into existence / set one (in Kim's case).
Ok, what I found the most cool (because I think running a marathon on a treadmill is crazy)... they have software that can match a runner's pace to a virtual run?! At least, that's how I'm reading the last paragraph. This is totally awesome news to me because it solves my "treadmill on a spaceship" dilemma (aka you need to exercise during space travel to prevent bone and muscle loss... but it would be awful to run on a treadmill all the time... unless maybe you could pretend you were really running outside... or playing a video game like Paperboy). Also, they point out another use for the Garmin footpod.
