Kate Gosselin: Marathon Mama!

Kate Gosselin smiles after completing the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The 36-year-old reality mama finished the 26.2 mile course in just under five hours.

“I’m running this because I want to show that with dedication and determination anything is possible,” Kate told People before running the race. “I want them to remember this moment when their mom completed a marathon, knowing that nothing in life should stop them from attaining their goals.”

“This will probably be one of the most painful messages I will ever impart to them,” Kate added.

    WHO CARES????????????????? Do you know how many other people were right there with her and did exactly the same thing???? Let’s hear some of their amazing stories. I’m sick of this woman!

  • Bonnie L

    Ahh, a mom of 8 dysfunctional kids is Kate. Gosselin should be out of the spotlight and do her kids a favor, so when you hear the Gosselin name you don’t cringe in disgust. Seriously, no one thinks good thoughts when you hear the name Gosselin.

  • ksus

    ummmmm, have either of you run a 26 mile marathon lately? if you haven’t anything better to do with your time than read about ,and criticize, people who do run them, maybe you should be getting some exercise yourselves.
    good for kate gosselin, i don’t agree with much she does but i have to admire an accomplishment like this.

  • Jadden

    Ah, most women and moms don’t have time and money to train for a 26 mile marathon lately. You know, the economy, being out of work, etc. But some how, by Kate selling her private life and kids to the public she managed to do it.

  • Jaime

    Take care of your kids Kate Gosselin instead of running and jetting off with a former presidential body guard to Bill Clinton.

    Seriously, being that Kate Gosselin has no talent maybe she can write for runners world and stay home and be there for the children she has exploited at naseum.

  • Sue

    Hey Kate, keep exploiting your kids. At this point they are already messed up beyond repair. Go buy another two seater sports car. What an idiot she is.

  • billie

    Good for her!. How many of you fatties have ran a full marathon?

  • billie

    Good for her! How many of you fatties have ran a full marathon?

  • Jenai

    Kate’s lying double speak. I am doing it for my kids so that they know anything is possible. Anything may be possible for children that have not been exploited and maligned in public and disgraced by a mother who has no boundaries or professionalism.

    It is too late for Kate’s children. So Kate keep following your dreams of being a staaaaaa because you can’t do too much more damage to your children.

  • Judy

    These pics were taken BEFORE the marathon, not after…I don’t think anyone has seen any pics of her after the marathon. She needs to stay at home for awhile with her kids or give custody to Jon.

  • Allie Bee

    Am I the only one who thinks that now that she’s had her face redone she looks like Jill Zarin post face lift? They must have used the same surgeon.

  • Suzie

    Some how I think Kate Gosselin got the wrong agent and she believes what she is told. Negative publicity is better than no publicity. But when there is waaaay more negative I think it is about time to call it quits for a while. How much of a laughing stock can one family be?

  • Sam

    How much of a laughing stock does Kate Gosselin want her family to be?

  • Chips Don’t Lie

    Quite coincidental that Kate’s new running BFF’s Paula Coneglio (bib 59617) and Ellen Lamar (bib 59616) all had the same exact times crossing the mats. Especially strange that Ellen started the marathon with Kate and Paula at the same exact time, then Ellen’s chip switched to the 1/2 marathon, but all 3 of them kept the same pace throughout all of the check points of the marathon. Step for step. For 26.2 miles.
    Kate can’t even finish a race without cheating and lying.

  • Ashley

    I can’t wait until we don’t have to hear about this woman. Why doesn’t she quit being a famewhore and get a job to support her children.

  • http://JustJared anymouse

    thousands of Moms and Dads run marathons! good for Kate!

  • Rocky


    Hey!! I’m skinny and couldn’t do it. Don’t diss the heavy people when some skinny people like me couldn’t get near that start line without passing out. LOL GOOD FOR KATE!!

  • Rocky


    Why post about her then? You should have just skipped this and gone onto next post? Guess you just like to hear yourself b*tch.

  • longchamp

    to quote Lady Macbeth: ‘out, out, damned spot!’. why is this trashy momzilla still in the press?!

  • Ashley


    Don’t worry about me and what I do. Move on and go to the next post.


    Oh whippdy doo, Kate ran a marathon and the sheeple think she walked on water. I once saw a blind person in a swimming competition… that was inspiring!. Kate bragged about the fact she finished (I believe in what Chips don’t lie said) she cheated and she went as far as posting a picture of her medal. . Oh gawd she is so full of herself she makes me sick.

  • Melore

    Oh Kate you are so awsome. How do you do it all? You are just a breath of fresh air? The best mom ever? Look in the mirror KG and you won’t like the reflection.

  • Sam

    Ah yea, but they don’t emotionally exploit their kiddos.

  • Sam

    @Ashley: Only worry because you seem to have lost you way and support Kate Gosselin. Her moral compass is non-existent.

  • Sam

    @anymouse: Yea and hopefully they take care of the emotional and psychiatric need of their children better than Kate Gosselin.

  • Seana

    Kate is in fantastic shape. Nice to see moms taking time out for physical fitness. She is setting a good example for her kids.

  • Ashley

    I think you need your “reply” to “Rocky” because if you read my previous post you would know I’m no Kate Gosselin supporter LOL
