Last year, actor, model, and marathon enthusiast Milind Soman or the "Iron-man" of India turned the Ultraman after finishing the Ultraman marathon in Florida which is considered to be the world's toughest endurance challenge.
This year looks no different. Now, the fitness freak he is, 53-year-old Soman has set a new fitness resolution for himself that includes a 7-hour marathon. Every day. Yep.
And he doesn't want to run alone. Taking to Twitter, Soman made an offer to Twitterati they happily refused.
He wrote, "Guys this year, I’m starting a new fitness resolution! Doing a 7 Hour Marathon every day! Yup, you read that right. Who wants to join me? #7hourmarathon"

Netizens wanted to join the marathon, only one that did not involve running.
