2,120.5 miles. What is the significance of this number?

First off, it's the approximate distance from Alexandria to Key West, Florida, a favorite vacation spot.

Second, it's the total number...

At one of the coldest races they participated in – the Twin Cities in Motion Valentine’s Day 5K – Celeste and Al Edenloff donned not only winter running gear, but also ended up wearing their winter coats while running the 3.1 mile race. (Contributed)

Al and Celeste Edenloff ran their first race in September 2009, but didn’t start seriously running until 2010. In the past eight years, they have logged more than 2,000 race miles in more than 200 races. (Contributed)
