Celebrity marathons?

8 miles on the schedule today.  It was a nice run but it was cold out; mid 40's.  First time I have worn long pants since May.  Also had long sleeves and light gloves as well.  I'm not ready for this!


I want to say that I'm sorry to many of you.  I have not been commenting much on other blogs although I have been lurking on many of them.  Please know that I do check out your blogs and enjoy reading them but sometimes I don't have time for many comments because I follow so many.  If you are a follower of my blog but I'm not following yours, let me know and I will add you to my list.  Thanks!

  1. So funny --- I was just gonna look this Celebrity marathon info up. I wanted to have someone to shoot for to "beat" next week.

  2. wow, some of those times are very respectable! That's awesome

  3. So who is David Lee Roth? when I see a time of - 6:04:03 for a flat marathon, I want to say: shoot that person!!! but then I think; I could never be out for that length of time, very brave of them...

  4. "Mario Lopez - 5:41:41 Boston marathon(charity?) - in his shape he should have run faster" LOL!!! You are so right!!

    It was chilly this morning, wasn't it? I wore glove too!

  5. Mario Lopez probably got stopped by his groupies... happens to me all the time!


  6. Thanks for the great post. Some of those times are very impressive. While I am not a marathoner (yet) these times give me something to shoot for when the time arrives for my first one. Thanks again for sharing.
