Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder and CEO, wrote a post late Monday evening saying he has a New Year’s resolution worth noting. Zuckerberg has pledged to run a total of 365 miles in 2016. Dubbed “A Year of Running,” Zuckerberg’s fitness challenge is open to everyone, and those who want to participate can join a public group he created on Facebook.

In his post, Zuckerberg says, “It’s a mile a day, and at a moderate pace it’s less than 10 minutes of running per day.” As of Tuesday evening, the group has more than 74 thousand members. 

The “Year of Running” challenge is a follow-up to Zuckerberg’s 2015 challenge “A Year of Books,” where group members read a different book every two weeks and discussed on the group page.

I have a physical challenge for 2016 as well.I’m going to run 365 miles and I’d love for as many people in this…
