Did Katie Holmes Fake The New York Marathon?

January 17th, 2008 // 40 Comments

Here’s some pics of Katie Holmes presenting her “Mad Money” co-star Queen Latifah with her Golden Globe on BET’s “106 & Park”. She looks almost happy. Taking some time off the Cruise will do that to a prisoner. Her smile might fade when she realizes that there is speculation that she might have pulled a Rosie Ruiz manuever and not actually fun the New York City marathon. At the time, people commented how she was able to wear heels that very night after she ran it, AND how she registered in August which only gave her so much time to train for it. But now there’s reports that the computer chip she ran with (every runner with a number gets one) recorded the EXACT SAME TIME as a runner named Paul Vincent. Who might be the runner that was photographed accompanying her in the marathon. Having the exact same time in a marathon is supposedly impossible and could mean Vincent was sporting her chip as well as his own. Bitch took the subway and jumped in on the last mile. Don’t front, Katie! You were wearing heels! Most people would be wearing one of those Jiffy-Pop blankets and lying under the table with the Dixie cups of water after running a marathon!

    But Aliens have supernatural powers so she probably did do it. She probably floated or was beamed along the 26 miles or whatever it is.

    Yes the heels are suspicious. I did a cross country marathon once and afterwards drove home. When I arrived and stood out of the car, the old legs gave way under me.Collapsed up against the car door. I had to shout at the neighbours that I wasn’t drunk driving.

    I was reading on a couple of blogs where ignorant people were saying that Scientology was 98% the same as Christianity. WELL ITS NOT!

    SCIENTOLOGY = CULT YOU ARE YOUR OWN GOD, YOU SAVE YOURSELF (VERY VERY SAD)

    CHRISTIANITY = JESUS SAVES US THREW THE SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD A FREE GIFT FROM GOD. ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS ACCEPT THE GIFT.

    If she did actually lie about this, what a pathETic thing to do. For chrissake! If you have to cheat to succeed, then WHY BOTHER?! How can you then go “Look what I achieved! Yay, me!”

    Heheh Remember when Barney of HIMYM ran the marathon and then collapsed on the subway because his legs just imploded? Cooohl episode.

    Hey MELISSA, Jesus threw blood at you? Gross! Plus, that stuff stains like a bitch.

    Ridiculous conclusion. I just ran a marathon on Sunday morning and at the after party wore the highest, pointed toe heals you can imagine. And you can have the same time especially with as many runners as you have in NY. With her ssllllooowww time of about 5 hours, I doubt she faked it. Hell in that amount of time, she could have walked!

    If she did fake it, she faked a really crappy time. And that would be even dumber.

    why would you fake a time of 5 hours and 20 minutes?? somebody could have walked a marathon in that pace! it’s pathetic that people are even praising her. I’m sure she placed last for her age group. Anyway, I ran a marathon a couple of years ago and felt totally fine after that. I’m sure I would have felt even better if I had finished it in over 5 hours.

    Just another opportunity for JH to go on another jealous rant. I swear, he wants to be Katie Holmes Cruise so bad… it really is pathetic.

  13. Ruby Jackson

    Yeah, a friend of mine who had been training for a full year ran in the marathon, and three of her toenails came off. I doubt she would have been up for wearing heels that night, too.

    Running (and completing?) the Marathon is all part of the transformation of “Kate” that Tom Cruise has orchestrated since her induction into the Church of Scientology. He wants to show that since she has emerged from her cocoon(of normalcy)to become this highly enlightened and uber-evolved super-being. ONLY since becoming a member could she perform the super-feat of running a marathon and still being the perfect wife/mother in heels a few hours later. COS wants everyone to think the evolution of her looks and standing (What? Did you say Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah are in her movie too?) are all wonderful by products of shedding her thetans….

    I ran the London Marathon with my brother…..we finished at EXACTLY the same time….7 hours 14 mins 38 secs

    We got alot of our chip times the same too….it is possible, I think people are trying to pick at her, she ran it and deserves any accolade she gets….well done Katie I say and I think she looks happy :)

    I wore heels the next night too! If you get your trainers fitted properly your feet are fine, just a bit achy!

  16. Carrie

    Oh and also her time was fantastic….you can’t walk a marathon in 5 hours trust me!

  17. Xenu for U

    Well, i remember the pictures and she wasn’t wearing a bra… 5 hours runing without a bra?? That would surely kills me!

    I ran the Stockholm marathon back in ’06 with a finishing time similar to Katie’s (nothing to really brag about there!). I didn’t really train for the run, I just went out and did it because I wanted to. It was hard but that night I was in heels dancing my (very sore) little booty away at one of the clubs. It can be done!

  20. jim

    I am sure she did not run it, she probably hair to get her fucking hair cut even shorter. Her hair looks like shit and the latifa is FAT!!

  21. jm

    Don’t think you’d fake a 5-1/2 hour time. That’s just above walking pace. I’m pudgy and did the Chicago Marathon an hour faster than that!

    Tommy Girl probably had a whole team of masseurs & people to care for her after the race. To make sure he could parade her out afterwards.

  22. Marnee

    Huh??? Just because you REGISTER for a race on a certain day does not mean that you STARTED TRAINING for that race on that day. Nice logic there. Gees, I mean, it’s not even funny as a joke. At any rate, one probably, if he isn’t insane or already in marathon shape, started training many, many months before hand.

    You can verify the chip times by looking at the NYC Marathon results. Paul Vincent came in at 5:13:38 and Katie Holmes came in at 5:13:17.

    Poor girl. She runs her heart out and this is what happens.

  23. clint

    I ran the NY marathon in Easy Spirit pumps!

  24. Kelly

    With all the media attention she gets I am sure if she even motioned towards a subway or tried to take a short cut they would have been all over it.

    These poor people can’t do anything without people saying is cult related or a conspirecy. Geez, get over it.

  25. the male jim

    I will change my name other jim, if you continue to act like a loser and make excuses for this ugly ass whore. She could have done it, but most likely didn’t because she is a fucking idiot!!

  26. Tiffany

    She wore heels that night, not the next day as one poster states.

    I know SEALS who ran marathons and lost toenails because the human body is made for sprinting not endurance. That’s nature’s way. You can and must train your mind and lungs to forget fight or flight, but the bones and muscles still obey nature.

    Katie wore heels that night. Her feet would still be swollen from impact even in good trainers/sneakers. I run, and I can afford the best shoes. My feet still hurt at a half-marathon and certainly swell from impact.

  27. btchyspice

    blah, blah, blah…some race…blah, blah, blah….

    does no one else find it odd that tommy let tommy girl out to hang on bet???

    i think that’s the real story here.

  28. sandra

    I actually saw her running the marathon at two different points (I was watching for some friends) so if she faked it, it wasn’t until after mile 23.

  29. Buttercup

    OBSERVER, you poor ignoirant slut.

    You are a liar and a whore.

  30. Mrs. Robinson

    That story is just BS. I ran the Chicago marathon a few years ago. It was my first , and I trained for about 3 months. My running time was about the same as Katie’s (5:30). I took a shower after the run, got on a plane back to LA, went to bed, and got up and went to work the next day, no worse for the wear and tear. Yes I had heels on that night. The human body is an amazing thing. I think a lot of thinks about Tom and Kate seem fake, but I really don’t think she faked running the marathon.

    IM SORRY THAT WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN YOU FIND AMUSSING. WE WILL ALL MEET OUR MAKER JESUS CHRIST SOMEDAY. READ THE BIBLE SO YOU WILL BE INFORMED THEN YOU WILL KNOW ITS NO JOKE. I SAY THIS WITH LOVE.

  32. virgy

    Fuck the heels – that bitch ran bra-less!

  33. 13morons

    On Regis and Kelly, Katie said she trained for 10 hours a week for two months to prepare for the marathon. This is more of the drivel that Tom Cruise and the Scientologists are trying to sell us. One of the basis tenents of Scientology is to lie to achieve your goal. Apparently Tom and Katie are following this to the letter. She has really lost her mind by hooking up with this loon.

  34. xenu

    Oprah beat that time for christ sake. And if you tell a runner that you “ran a marathon” in 5:30, they will laugh at you, a 12 min mile is a joke. Don’t be SP’s, obey LRH, and KSW. or aliens will eat you souls.

  35. Nicole

    She went on 106 & Park? WTF!

  36. Nichole

    I never comment but i just wanted to say..if you have the pics of her running the marathon, she didnt have a bra on when she crossed the finish line. There is no way you a woman could run for that long w/o some support!!!

    She ran without a bra and also wearing yoga plants that were so long they were dragging on the ground.
    The rules state that the timing chip was to be attached to the shoe and in plain site. Her pants covered where it was supposed to be.
    That was okay since her “body guard” actually had it on HIS shoe.
    And note from the pictures, her pants were not even frayed around the hems from dragging on the ground for 26.2 miles.
    And the only pictures of her are from the start and from mile 22 to the finish line.

    I’ve run 3 marathons,was able to wear heels the same night on all occasions. Ice baths help. The night of the NYC marathon, she wore open toed shoes, which would definitely be more comfortable with the swelling. Not everyone loses toenails in training. From what she’s said about her preparations, it doesn’t seem to have been intense enough to have warrented toe nail loss.
