Single city block hosts world's longest race - Yahoo! News: "The longest foot race in the world is 3,100 miles, long enough to stretch from New York to Los Angeles. Those who run it choose a different route: they circle one city block in Queens -- for two months straight.

The athletes lap their block more than 5,000 times. They wear out 12 pairs of shoes. They run more than two marathons daily. In the heat and rain of a New York summer, they stop for virtually nothing except to sleep between midnight and 6 a.m."

Run baby run! I make it to starbux every morning and turn back. one lap, one day, 5 days a week, with a coffee light frappacino.
