Mark Zuckerberg is getting old at 31, but he’s still up on the latest fads.

The Facebook CEO has shared his new year’s goal: “I’m going to run 365 miles and I’d love for as many people in this community to join me as possible.”

On letsrun.com, the message board was lighting up — after first wondering if the pledge was fake.

Some comments:

  • If real, it adds a new dimension to hobby jogger-ism.
  • When you look at the photo which do you see first: cell phone or heel strike? Which is more painful to look at?
  • Why 365? It’s a leap year, he should have said 366.
  • 2011 called. It wants its running fad back.
  • I smell a Zuckerberg-funded series of hobby jogging events coming.

The thread eventually veered off track, discussing whether a 260-pound guy could run a 7-minute mile.

But Zuckerberg stayed focused, and highlighted a Facebook page to capitalize on his quest.

“This is a lot of running, but it’s not a crazy amount,” he said. “It’s a mile a day, and at a moderate pace it’s less than 10 minutes of running per day.”

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…
