He will also build a robot to control the temperature in his home.

According to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, 2016 is the year of running. 

Zuckerberg shared his fitness goal -- running 365 miles, or one mile for each day of the year -- on Facebook (where else?). He also created a public Facebook group called "A Year of Running" to include other people who want to take on the challenge, too. (There's no word on whether the new dad will be purchasing a jogging stroller.)

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...

Zuck's goal is admirable and totally accessible. Even if you don't consider yourself a runner, research shows that running just 10 minutes a day can improve your health. 

The only catch? Zuckerberg's math is just a little off: 2016 is a leap year, so if he runs a mile a day, he'll actually tally 366 miles by the end (or maybe he'll cash in a well-deserved rest day).

For 2016, Zuckerberg also resolved to "build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work," he posted, referring to artificial intelligence. "You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man." 

Even if you positively detest running, a mile a day might be an easier feat than building a robot. Just sayin'.
