Marathons have been on my mind like crazy lately. I was reading a bit more about the marathon and noticed that a few celebrities ran as well. Fun fact--I love celebrities even more when I find out that they run. I know, shocking, right? Me...love someone because they run? Who would have thought! ;-) Anyway, here are a few celebrities that ran this weekend in the ING NYC Marathon and their times:
Summer Sanders: 3 hours, 24 mins
(Yes! From Figure It Out on Nickelodeon...oh yeah, and she's an Olympic swimmer--what she is actually known for)
Patrick Wilson: 3 hours, 32 mins
Bill Rancic: 4 hours, 57 mins
(Bill's reason for running was very inspiring--he ran for Guiliana's breast cancer foundation to raise money and awareness. He began the race in DEAD LAST place and for every runner he was able to pass, he raised one dollar. Apparently, he raised close to $30,000! So awesome!)
Christy Turlington Burns: 4 hours, 35 mins
Pam Anderson: 5 hours, 41 mins
(I don't even want to know how she managed to strap those melons down while running 26.2 miles! I'm sure it was painful...)
And then I began to wonder, what other celebrities have run marathons?
Edward Norton 3 hours, 48 mins
(My Boy) Ryan Reynolds 3 hours, 50 mins...he just got like 5 times hotter.
Al Roker 7 hours 9 mins
Sean "P Diddy" Combs 4 hours, 19 mins
Katie Holmes 5 hours, 29 mins
How did she run in those pants?!
