Katie Holmes successfully completed the New York Marathon on Sunday. She crossed the finish line at around 3:30 p.m. and her final time was 5:29:58. Major props to her. Running marathons is not something you snark on. Those are some hard times. When you hit a hill, it’s like you’ve entered the ninth ring of hell. Or so they tell me. The only marathons I take part in usually involve drinking. And if it’s an actual marathon, it’s fun to stand on the sidelines outside of your favorite bar on the route and cheer the runners on. What? I’m supportive!
Right after that first kiss, Holmes still had a way to go after Tom caught up to her at 1st Avenue and 96th Street, about 20 blocks from the Cruise’s Upper East Side hotel. A path over to and down Manhattan’s West Side was still before her.
This was probably her chance to exit the marriage, but you know her husband Tom Cruise kept a tight hold on that kid and emphasized that “SURI and I will be there to greet you when you cross the finish line. I will be keeping a tight hold on YOUR DAUGHTER so she doesn’t wander off. I’d hate for anything to happen to SURI.” And you know Xenu operatives were shadowing her the entire marathon. Running beside her, in trees, in sewers she ran over. With those wrist radios. Couldn’t one of them have radioed for a bra for her?
