We'd venture to say that taking psychedelics ahead of a marathon isn't exactly in the runner's playbook.
Diplo was content on breaking that guidance, however, and managed to complete his first full-length marathon in the process. Previously, the Grammy-winning DJ and producer said he'd only completed 11 miles in a single outing.
Despite the self-imposed challenge, Diplo not only doubled his personal record in distance, but did so with impressive timing. According to Runners World, the 44-year old completed the marathon in just shy of four hours. Prior to the race, Diplo told his fans he'd seek to best Oprah's 1994 personal record, which he ultimately did by roughly 34 minutes.
"My one goal was to beat Oprah’s time and I ate that (sorry oprah)," Diplo said. "The most I ever ran was 11 miles so I did what any normal person would do and took LSD."
