P.Diddy (formerly Puff Daddy) says he will compete in the NYC marathon. It's only two months away and he's only been training 3 weeks. It's a shame that this marathon will probably be a "pop event" covered by tv and radio stations just because he's running, and not to celebrate the winners. I bet he won't break 5 and a half.

Doesn't really bother me. I view the marathon as largely a media event in the first place. All but the top 1% or so are running it purely because of the mystique and prestige surrounding the distance. You don't see many people lining up for 30k's and 50k's, but you tack "marathon" to the name and it's a whole different story.
