The Barcelona Marathon may have been canceled earlier this month due to the coronavirus outbreak, but Elisha Nochomovitz wasn’t about to waste all of the time he spent training.

Instead, the French athlete turned his apartment’s 23-foot long balcony into the course, running its length back and forth 3,000 times.

According to the 32-year-old, the race took 6 hours and 48 minutes to cover the 26.2-mile distance, since the shortened track made it impossible to build momentum or speed.

Fueled by M&Ms and Coca-Cola, Nochomovitz dedicated his feat to medical staffers saving lives during the pandemic.
