There is such a thing as the record for the furthest distance run on a treadmill in twelve hours—and it’s just been broken. This past Saturday, hedge fund analyst Chris Solarz ran from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for a grand total of 77.07 miles. Looks like seven actually is a lucky number for this guy!

Solarz is yet another example of an extraordinary no-meat athlete, having broken this and six other Guinness world records on a totally vegan diet. Over the course of his 12-hour run, Solarz consumed more than 5,000 calories of running snacks. We were dying to know just what powers a vegan through 77 miles (that’s just shy of three marathons in a row, by the way), so Greatist reached out to Solarz for the low-down on his eating schedule for the big day.
