I like to run marathons but I would never run one for charity. This guy is beyond that! And I have to agree with Jay Thomas that it is a collaasal waste of time and so vain.. We all set goals and personal challenges for ourselves and running a marathon isnt any more monumental than other peoples. You dont close down the streets or tell all your coworkers when you win a softball game, or whatever. Even Robin was talking on the show about how self congratulatory marathoners are. Jay Thomas should have this guy on his show.
