Ryan Reynolds To Run NYC Marathon

Ryan Reynolds To Run NYC Marathon

Newly married actor Ryan Reynolds has taken to the Huffington Post to unload some thoughts about his plans to run in the New York City marathon.

Years ago on the day of the New York Marathon, the 31-year-old Canadian actor, who married Scarlett Johansson last month, joined a crowd a half-mile before the finish line. Ryan describes the moment ever-so-vividly: “I saw guys coming in to finish with bleeding nipples. Why in the hell were their nipples bleeding? People were crying. People were limping, hobbling, screaming, crawling… I breathed in deeply and decided something: I’d never f—ing do that ever, ever. What in the f— were these idiots thinking? Bleeding nipples. Bleeding. Nipples.”

But times have changed and Ryan is currently training to run the marathon November 2 for Team Fox, which supports of Michael J. Fox‘s foundation to the fight against Parkinson’s Disease. (Fox has been struggling with PD for the past 18 years. Ryan‘s father, Jim, for the last 15.)

Ryan explains, “I’m running in The ING NYC Marathon as a member of Team Fox because I support the Foundation’s urgent mission and I believe that together we can improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s and put an end to this disease.”

You could probably put duck tape over your nipples so they dont rub against the shirt the entire race.

My uncle has Parkinson’s. I think it’s pretty cool that Van Wilder is raising money on Team Fox for something he cares about.

Websites like GiveForward.org, Fundable.com and Firstgiving.com allow people to do the same thing but for any charities they want. Pretty cool sites if you’re looking to get involved in a marathon and want to kill two birds with one stone.

This guy is really hoot..I didn’t know who he was before his marriage..He’s not a professional runner, but his body is reaaly great!!!

still can’t believe SJ got hitched to this joke
