When he's not co-founding a billion-dollar self-driving car startup or buying the most expensive home in San Francisco, Kyle Vogt apparently spends his free time making everyone else on the planet seem lazy.
Vogt, 34, announced this month that he was "taking a few days off" from his job as president of Cruise, which General Motors bought in 2016. But not to chillax by the infinity-edge plunge pool on the fifth floor of his $22 million Pacific Heights mansion.
Instead, Vogt ran 183.4 miles. He called it a world recordrunning seven marathons on all seven continents in less than four days.
After starting in Antarctica, Vogt hopped to Argentina, Panama, Spain, Egypt, Oman and Australia — a route he determined to be the most efficient by using custom-built mapping software. He ran a 26.2-mile course laid out near each airport, with as little as four hours between each stop.
Although his goal was to complete the journey in 77 hours, he did it in 81 hours, 38 minutes and 46 seconds, with nearly half of the time spent in flight. Hopefully he wasn't too hard on himself for taking so long.
