Celebrity Marathoners

I am currently en route to Chicago, but I prepared this lovely post for you to enjoy while I am travelling!


With it being marathon week for me, I figured it would be fun to do a little post on celebrities who have ran marathons! I am always amazed at finding new celebrities who have ran marathons and stalking down their time is even more fun!

    I've long thought that if Oprah can run a marathon, I should be able to do it too!
    My brother ran the 2009 NYC marathon and I remember him mentioning that Ed Norton ran it too.
    Ryan Reynolds was looking hot in his picture :)!!

    every time I see that picture of Katie Holmes, all I can think is "OMG, she ran an entire marathon with NO BRA…WHAT?"

    Wow – Ryan Reynolds was a pimp already, but now know that he's a marathoner? Even better! (I'm actually surprised to see GWB's time!)

    Anybody else suprised by Will Ferrell's time? Who knew?

    I love this post!! I have so many comments, eesh. I mean GOOD for each and every one of them, but when Katie Holmes was running you'd think she placed first. Lance's time is sick! And look at Diddy getting beat by the Pres – he wouldn't have made the band.

    Who would have thought Oprah would have a better time than Mario Lopez by almost an hour! Fun post 🙂

    still cannot believe katie holmes ran a marathon without a bra. even those of us with small boobs need sports bras! unless we want to end up with our A cups around our waist by the time we're 40.
