Just because you're in space doesn't mean you have to miss a marathon. Just ask astronaut Tim Peake. Sunday, the British national ran the London Marathon from the International Space Station.
Or rather, he ran the equivalent distance on a special space treadmill.
Peake showed off some of that equipment during an interview with British journalists before the big race.
