In total, Apple Watch tracked 26.44 miles through the marathon with Burns clocking in a time of 3 hours, 47 minutes. According to the Watch, she burnt 1717 calories on the workout — she describes it as the “best Workout summary ever”.

In the closing remarks, Burns says that the Watch is the perfect tool for “improving your health and fitness” with “setting small goals, then working patiently to meet them.” Naturally, these comments aren’t really a surprise given how the blog is endorsed.

You can listen to Burns discuss her marathon training in more detail in a podcast interview hosted by Apple’s Jay Blahnik.
