A friend of mine posted this fabulous picture on Facebook today. It made me wonder what other famous people are public with their running. Alanis Morissette has talked about her running. As has her ex, Ryan Reynolds. Edward Norton and Flea have used their running to raise awareness and money. Here's a list of celebrity marathon times to give you goals of who to beat. Here's another list of celebrities and their marathon times. Princess Beatrice has run the London Marathon while physically attached to 33 other runners, including Richard Branson's children and Natalie Imbruglia. They called this a "human caterpillar" not to be confused with a "Human Centipede" Valerie Bertinelli ran the Boston Marathon just days before turning 50. David Lee Roth ran a marathon in New York. Meridith Baxter ran one back in 1982. My favorite celebrity runner is still Eddie Izzard.
Yes, these people are rich and famous, but when it comes to running, that doesn't matter. There's only so much equipment you need and can use. They may spend tons of money on a personal run coach, but you can get the same information through local running clubs and running stores.
