Well, it’s been announced that George Clooney plans to run the 2016 London Marathon! According to this news report in the Telegraph, Clooney made a bet: he promised Christy Turlington that he would run the London Marathon in 2016 if she finished the 2015 London Marathon in under four hours. Well, guess what? Turlington, who ran for her charity, Every Mother Counts, finished in 3:45!
I’ve tried to enter the lottery for the London Marathon a few times, with no success, but I’m now determined to make it happen in 2016. Hey, they even have an official blogger entry – maybe I can do that?
Here is information on registration for the 2016 London Marathon.
