8 celebrities who run – who could be your next inspiration?
Famous folks run for as many reasons as we do – for physical and mental health, to satisfy a competitive streak, and to raise money and awareness for causes dear to their hearts. Here are 8 celebrities who run. Wil Ferrell The famous funny man takes his running seriously. The Ron Burgundy star has a sub 4-hour Boston Marathon to his name – you can’t act your way into a time like that. Alanis Morisette Singer Alanis Morisette loves to run and credits it with helping to reduce her depression. She has completed a marathon in the name of the National Eating Disorders Association, in order to bring awareness and encourage positive body image and mental health for men and women with eating disorders. Drew Carey A few surprises here – comedian Drew Carey took up running to keep on top of his weight, but it’s not his first time on the track. Drew did a stint in the Marines in his 20s, so he’s no stranger to half marathon length training runs. Julie Bowen Best known for her role on US family comedy Modern Family, Julie Bowen is an avid runner. She credits running as the best way to keep herself sane amongst busy filming schedules and raising her own 3 children. Gordon Ramsey The foul-mouthed chef is a professional in the kitchen and can also attest to finishing the London Marathon in a cool 3:45. He’s also been spotted finishing the odd triathlon. Ryan Reynolds The New York City Marathon often has well known celebrities who run attempting to get across the finish line with their dignity intact. Ryan Reynolds was convinced to run after meeting Back to the Future’s Michael J. Fox, who has Parkinson’s disease. His efforts brought plenty of attention to Fox’s philanthropic efforts to conquer the disease. Heidi Klum Some celebrities who run are motivated by the chance to have some alone time, and others are in it to keep their figures trim. Supermodel and Victoria’s Secret Angel Heidi Klum, does it for both reasons. She also promotes women finding running buddies to help maintain fitness routines. Of course, Heidi has called on her buddy Miranda Kerr to keep her company on the road.
