Rocky Balboa: Distance Running Pioneer

Last fall, Dan McQuade of the Philadelphia Magazine asked an interesting question about the famous training montage in Rocky II, exactly how far was Rocky's run? McQuade used the USA Track and Field distance measuring tool to map out the route depicted in the sequence and made an interesting discovery; it turns out Rocky was a serious distance runner. Total distance for the run turned out to be more than 30 miles.
