Friday Chuckle: Running a Half-Marathon in the Air


Photo by Colleen PetchAustralian newspaper, The Canberra Times reports on Rob Ginnivan who ran a Half-Marathon... on a treadmill... in a hot air balloon!

"Mr Ginnivan lost both his grandfathers to heart disease, and he hopes to raise $100,000 for the Heart Foundation, as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Mr Ginnivan’s right leg seized up during his last two kilometres, as the tilt of the basket had him effectively running up hill, but he said he was delighted to complete the feat in a time of 2 hours and 18 minutes."
