He has a tradition of setting New Year’s challenges

Building an artificially intelligent butler must not have posed enough of a challenge for Mark Zuckerberg, because the Facebook founder has added a physical goal to his New Year’s resolutions — run 365 miles in the 2016.

It will be “a year of running,” the 31-year-old wrote in a Facebook post announcing his plan on Monday. Zuckerberg has even set up a public group where anyone can participate in the challenge. “I’d love for as many people in this community to join me as possible,” he wrote.

Earlier that day, Zuckerberg took to Facebook to share his plans for programming an artificially intelligent system to monitor his house and help with his work.

Both goals are part of Zuckerberg’s annual tradition of setting New Year’s challenges. In the past he promised to read two books a month and learn to speak Mandarin.
