P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, or whatever it is you want to call him these days crossed the NYC Marathon finish line in 2003 with a time of 4 hours, 14 minutes, 54 seconds. More impressively, he raised two million dollars for NYC schools in the process.
Katie completed the NYC marathon in 2007 with a time of 5 hours, 29 minutes, 58 seconds (we're betting that the next time she does one, she finds a slightly more supportive sports bra). And she was in heels for a party that night.
George W. Bush
President Bush did the Houston Marathon in 1993, finishing with a very respectable time: 3 hours, 44 minutes, 52 seconds. No wonder he was successful in running for office. Get it?
Oprah completed the Marine Corps Marathon in 4 hours, 29 minutes, 20 seconds as a special gift to herself for her 40th birthday. The race suddenly went from a small, somewhat unknown race to the marathon that everybody wanted to do.
Freddie Prinze, Jr.
Here's a little something to chew on: Had Freddie and Oprah run the same race, she would have won by almost an hour and a half. Freddie completed the 2006 Los Angeles Marathon in 5 hours, 50 minutes, and 49 seconds. Would he go faster for a Scooby Snack, you think?
While other "real" runners have certainly finished faster, Will Ferrell comes in near the top in this group with a time of 3 hours, 56 minutes, 12 seconds in the 2003 Boston Marathon. Who would've guessed? Frank the Tank didn't look all that speedy in "Old School."
The cyclist traded his wheels for running shoes and has completed two NYC Marathons and a Boston. His time for the 2007 NYC Marathon was an impressive 2 hours, 46 minutes, 43 seconds. But then again, nobody exactly expected him to be slow, right?
As fit as this macho man is, you'd expect a seriously competitive time, right? But his Boston Marathon, 2003, finish was 5 hours, 41 minutes, 41 seconds. He says he was staying behind to run with the girl he was dating. Sure, we believe that.
The wickedly hot funny man risked bloody nipples (his words, not ours) to compete in the 2008 NYC Marathon. He wanted to raise money for Parkinson's disease, which his father suffers from. He succeeded -- he raised plenty of funds and awareness, plus crossed the finish in 3 hours, 50 minutes, 22 seconds.
He's better known for his skills in the kitchen, as well as for his foul temper (and language), but it turns out that Gordon Ramsey is quite the runner, too. He's competed in the London Marathon for many years, and holds an impressive pace -- it took him just 3 hourse, 46 minutes, 10 seconds to finish in 2006.
