The New York City Marathon always attracts some celebrity runners and this year's race is no exception. The star-studded field includes Today show weatherman Al Roker, Food Network star Bobby Flay, and Jared Fogle, who famously lost 245 pounds by eating Subway sandwiches.
If you're running the NYC marathon on Sunday or you're training for another marathon, it's fun and even motivational to try to beat a famous person's marathon time. Check out this list of celebrities' marathon times to see what it take to beat Oprah, Lance Armstrong, P. Diddy, and others.
And, yes, all of those people probably had access to expensive coaches and some had trainers (or Secret Service!) pace them through the entire race. But that only means you'll have even more bragging rights if you can beat them! Try some of these tips for running a faster marathon.
