I didn't beat Oprah

. . . in my last marathon run of a week ago - but I did beat Katie Holmes (Tom Cruise's wife).


Supposedly she ran 5:29:58 in the New York City Marathon today, although I haven't found her results under that name. She finished in 34,193rd place. Perhaps she's exempt from the headphone ban because she needs to receive interstellar communications.


They fixed the search function that was broken yesterday! Here is her actual result and 5K splits. Yeah, she started fast and faded in the second half. I can certainly relate! (To give her full credit for her accomplishment, she did beat my 2005 New York City Marathon time by over an hour!)

HA! If I read the rules correctly this pic should get her DQ'd.

Well you know those celebrities. They can pretty much do whatever they want and come up smelling like roses.

Emmm - is she running A MARATHON without a sports bra? Is she insane? I don't care how small your equipment is - it needs to be taken care of.

ps Love the blog.

i have a faster time than her, too! although not with the crowds at NYC... but still. Is that wrong?

why would you want to tune out all the greatness that is NYC scene with headphones? I get it on the TM or on a solo run (but not even -- when I run alone in NYC there's always plenty to see).

Doesn't she get enough "interstellar communications" from that nutcase she married?

Nancy, I can't believe you still link Oprah with marathoning. Your not alone, I still hear every fall, as PF Changs comes up, "I want to beat Oprahs time."

It used to be that people ran marathons to qualify for Boston, now they do it to beat Oprahs time from 17 years ago.
