The Katie Holmes New York Marathon Rumour

by | 20th, January 2008

A BLOGGER called Harlem 26.2 whose description has, as Defamer reports, been following all the Katie Holmes marathon conspiracy theorizing. He adds his thoughts:

All the conspiracy theories fail to mention or recognize the “mystery runner” that accompanied Katie in the race.

He wore bib # 6074, he does not show up or exist in the results database. He’s the first runner in the history of the NYC Marathon to “not exist”. He can be seen in photos on Flickr, we have the links on our site, just look in the comments of today, you’ll see them.The conspiracy fails when you see Katie has registered “split times” – however they could have been recorded by this “mystery runner, bib # 6074 – wearing her assigned timing chip – clearly adjacent to her at all times in the few photos that exists. Check out site, the photos on flickr, the NYC Marathon database – that runner is a total mystery….

A conspiracy, or not..

My point is, reading that Katie Holmes ran the entire New York City Marathon then posed for photos and attended the premiere of Tom’s movie “Lions For Lambs” strikes me as another one of those moments. How can this story be true? How could Katie — who in some circles is rumored to be pregnant — have had the time to get into phenominal running shape in “two months” while attending to a one-year-old child, run the entire marathon, then glowingly appear in photos right at the finish line?

On the other hand, though, how can this story be made up?
