This video has been around the running community for a while, but I have actually talked to a runner or two who hasnt seen it. Shocking! Its a video Anthony Edwards did about his participation in the recent NYC Marathon. I was thinking about it during my long run on Saturday and wondered how he actually fared in the race.
Check out the video if you havent seen it yet!
Well, he did a pretty good job of acting like a runner. Anthony Edwards finished in 4:08:20 :)
Some other celebrity finishes:
Matthew Reeve (son of Christopher Reeve) = 4:23:36
George Hirsch (founding publisher of New York magazine and "brainchild" behind Runner's World magazine, age 75) = 4:06:14
Edward Norton = 3:48:01
Alanis Morissette = 4:28:45
On an interesting note, David Blaine was supposed to participate and he didnt. The guy can levitate, go for days without eating or sleeping, and bury himself alive, but he can't swing the NYC Marathon? Interesting...
