Katie Holmes is Going the Distance

With husband, Tom Cruise, and daughter, Suri Cruise, in attendance, Katie Holmes ran in the New York City Marathon yesterday, completing the 26.2 mile race in 5 hours and 29 minutes.

I’m good, but I’m feeling very tired,” Holmes, 28, later told People magazine. Holmes, who learned to run as a child in Toledo, Ohio, has been training voraciously in recent months. “I have always loved to run,” she told Harper’s Bazaar magazine recently. “It has helped me lose the extra baby weight.”

Not to overstate the obvious here, but Katie Holmes really doesn’t need to practice this much. She’ll be able to outrun Tom Cruise when she finally escapes. In Tom’s defense, lifts don’t provide as much support and motion control as one might think.
