British Man Didn't Let Being In Quarantine Deter His Birthday Marathon

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

The British man ran the 26.2 miles for his birthday. He did it in his backyard, running back and forth 7,000 times. And if that's not enough, Campbell also raised more than $22,000 for Britain's National Health Service to help battle the coronavirus. If anyone deserves a birthday cake, it is definitely that guy.
