Are You Faster Than Your Favorite Celebrity? Celebrity Half Marathon and Marathon Times

Marathon Times

I ran my first half marathon this year at the 2013 Kentucky Derby Festival MiniMarathon in 2:09:36. Now my half marathon PR (personal record) is 2:04:00. As a competitive guy I was wondering how this time compared against celebrities. I did a little research and the results of that research are below. There are some fit celebrities out there. See how you compare.
