As a former runner and current poker player I found this story fascinating, and I think some of you all will as well.
Basically a high stakes poker player bet his friend he could run 70 miles in 24 hours on a treadmill. But wait! He didn't even ask for even odds - he put up $900,000 against his friend's $300,000. He ended up completing the task with an hour to spare and won the $300K. What an animal.
