Something tells me he has been running, just not training for marathon, for a long time. Most people who are as big as Pdiddy are very fit, at least fit enough to look really good, and to get this good looking, they run, they also do other things, but most of them run, im assuming he is one who has maybe been a jogger for many years, so training for real for 8 weeks would be good enough for him to do alright. He probably could have finished one before he trained. That’s my guess.
So, if the average joe goes out and trains hard for 8 weeks, then runs a marathon, he/she will be disappointed most likely.. if not inujured!
Sure it got running in the headlines, but personally I don’t want my sport to only be in the headlines when someone that is famous in another area does it once.
Athlete of the week should be reserved for someone who trains hard day in and day out, someone who loves running so much that they have it as there main focus.
However, I do think he should have gotten some sort of thanks, a medal, or something of that sort, for raising lots of money.. not for running fast… or being an exceptional Athlete
