Ryan Reynolds: runaway groom?
With new bride Scarlett Johansson cheering him along the way, the Canadian actor completed the New York City Marathon on Sunday in just under four hours.
"I'm still standing. I'm very excited about that," he told reporters at the end.
Reynolds, 31, finished 9,646th overall by running the 26.2 miles in 3 hours, 50 minutes and 22 seconds. The first-time marathoner, who called himself "a running joke," raised money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. He was inspired by his father's struggle with Parkinson’s Disease.
"When I saw Michael J. Fox on Fifth Avenue, I gained about 15 pounds in goose bumps. It kind of pushed me through the last six miles or so," said Reynolds.
He wasn't the only newlywed to take off running this morning. Beth Ostrosky, aka Mrs. Howard Stern, ran the marathon to raise money for the North Shore Animal League. With her new hubby cheering her on, she completed the race in just over 4 hours and 15 minutes, finishing 17,740th overall.
Meanwhile, former Bachelor Andy Baldwin beat them both, crossing the finish line in 3 hours and 25 minutes, good enough for 3,759th.
