This week on the podcast, Nick and Chris discuss running world records.

We’re not talking about the world’s fastest mile or the quickest marathon run ever. Those are impressive and no joke.

This episode is dedicated to the absurd records in the world of running that most people probably didn’t know exist like:

  • Do you know who holds the record for the fastest blindfolded mile?
  • Ever hear of Xu Zhenjun? He ran an entire marathon backward.
  • Chugmaster Corey Bellemore keeps breaking his own beer mile record.

Nick and Chris discuss some of the oddest running world records, how hard or easy each run seems, and which record both guys are confident they could break.
