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?
