MARY REICHARD, HOST: When there’s a will, there’s a way, as we say.
And that goes for getting your exercise each day.
A 32-year-old Frenchman took that very seriously. He’s on lockdown along with everyone else in Paris, but Elisha Nochomovitz decided to run a marathon without leaving his apartment!
AUDIO: [Sound of running]
You can hear Elisha running back and forth on his 23-foot-long balcony and he ran back and forth for a total distance of 26.2 miles.
He didn’t exactly make record time. He couldn’t gain momentum or speed and had to constantly turn. It took him almost seven hours.
Now technically, France allows people to go outside for “individual sports” like running, with required paperwork.
But Elisha had been training for a marathon, and wanted to assure himself he could run whatever the condition. Physical and mental conditioning.
BASHAM: We each need that these days!
REICHARD: It’s The World and Everything in It.
