So I thought that it would be fun for this race to pick another goal.
CELEBRITY MARATHON TIMES!!!
Everyone knows about Oprah and Ditty. And it was a humbling experience to know that they're marathon times are out of my league. Good job for them blah blah blah. So who is in my league?
Al Roker - 7:09 - I know I can beat this. Even when the road turned to lava and the runners started to look like extras from the Thriller Video at Chicago 2010, I beat this.
David Lee Roth - 6:04 - I can beat this. And I also find it hilarious that I found his name in an Internet search of celebrity marathon times. It also showed up with this picture.
The thought of this picture and this man running a marathon will hopefully carry me through at least 6-7 miles... laughing.
Meredith Viera - 5:59 - She's a TV personality, she's charming, witty... and I'm gonna beat her too!
Katie Holmes - 5:29 - Insert Scientology joke here... I remember when she ran this time and some uppity so and so wrote into Runner's World saying things like how she wasn't even running and people as slow as her should be flogged and kicked and all races should only allow people that can run under 4 hour marathons and all us 5+ hour marathon people are just taking up everyone else's oxygen. And I hate that guy. Good job Katie! I'm still gonna beat you! ( I hope so).
And now we come to my real nemesis.... Jared Fogle - 5:13 - The Subway guy. He got famous for loosing weight eating Subway Sandwiches. And now he travels around with his "I used to be a big fella" pants encouraging people to eat sandwiches or something. I want to beat that guy.
