Katie Holmes

I read magazines all of the time.  Jedd owns a convenience store and the magazines he doesn’t sale he gets to keep/trash after he cuts out the UPC code and returns it for a refund.  Our library (bathroom) consists of People magazines-TMI, I know-LOL.  Anywho, the following is a letter I read in the MailBag section of People magazine~the December 10, 2007 issue.



I ran the New York City Marathon and finished in a time of 2:36:32. Like many others that day, I earned it the hard way, logging over 100 miles a week for months.  And unlike Katie Holmes, I work full-time.  Running a 5 and 1/2 hour marathon is not impressive, indicates a lack of preparation and is fundamentally disrespectful to the marathon.  If you want to know what impressive looks and sounds like, talk to Paula Radcliffe, who had a baby this year and won the same race in 2:23 and change.

I too heard all about Katie Holmes running a marathon in 5 and 1/2 hours and was seen out afterward in high heels.  Wooptidoo!  My brother and sister-in-law both ran their first marathon last year and their times were much more impressive! They also work full-time jobs~attorneys!

My sister-in-law ran her first marathon last year (the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego ) and her time was under 4 hours.  She kicked KH’s butt! My brother also ran his first marathon last year (Dallas White Rock Marathon) and his time was 3:13.  He almost qualified for the Boston Marathon~just shy of 3 minutes. Katie Holmes~eat their dust!

Sooooo~How does this make YOU feel?



My younger brother, Joshua,  will be running in the Dallas White Rock Marathon tomorrow morning.  He hopes to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I will be keeping up with the race via WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas and via text message updates.  He and my sister-in-law have become marathoners this year.  They live in Austin, Texas.  They are both attorneys and now marathoners.  Sylvia, my sister-in-law, ran in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego last June.  I used to be the runner in the family, but now I am too lazy-lol. I couldn’t even run half of a mile, let alone 26.2 miles.  Good Luck Joshua! I love and miss you!

Do you have an exercise story or any goals to share?
