Katie Holmes Marathon Conspiracy

    From Celebitchy.com:

    There have been rumblings for some time that Katie Holmes couldn’t possibly have run the full NY Marathon during the day and gone out with heels on that night. Katie drew some skeptics when she was seen at her husband’s side that very night wearing heels at the premiere of his film Lions for Lambs. She could easily obtain custom made sneakers as well as those insanely expensive Louboutins that are made from a mold of your foot, so maybe her feet were immune to the wear and tear that plague average runners.

    Katie also ran 26 miles on concrete in 5 and a half hours wearing a camisole-type top with just a built in bra and no sports bra. Many female runners say that would chafe and be extremely uncomfortable, but Katie told David Letterman that she felt “strong” afterwards. Others note that her pants seemed to drag on the ground and looked too long. Five and a half hours is not an incredible finish time, and a 12 minute mile is not a brisk run, but it’s very physically grueling and it seems like you would need to wear a sports bar.

    There are hardly any photos that I could find of Katie Holmes running the race apart from when she crossed the finish line. That could be explained by the fact that she wasn’t recognized until the end. The NY Daily News says that husband Tom Cruise met her halfway through the race to give her an encouraging kiss, but there are no photos of that. She is seen in just a camisole in the few photos of her on the course and is in a jacket when she finishes.

    A “mystery” guy was seen running with Katie with a bib number, 6074, that was not registered in the marathon. He is widely assumed to be her bodyguard, which doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I’m mentioning him because he figures in some of these stories.

    It sounds ludicrous to use such flimsy evidence to suggest that she would fake running the marathon for publicity purposes, but there are some real indicators to suggest she may well have.

    Defamer had a tipster send them in the “split times” of Katie Holmes compared to another runner from the NY City Marathon, as found on the official marathon website. The split times are registered electronically at specific stations on the route using the chip for each runner. She has the exact same times, down to the second, of this other guy for most every benchmark in the middle of the race. Even if someone was running alongside her the entire time, would they have the exact same time down to the second like that?

    The other guy is registered as Paul Vincent, bib number 28994. He was seen running near her in several photos at the finish line and is shown above in the header image. Katie, the unregistered guy who is thought to be her bodyguard, and the guy with the exact same “split times” as Katie are all wearing similar black jackets.
  2. I'll admit, she has looked better.

    She's a Scientologist.....I'm sure she has the ability to teleport.

    Of course there is a conspiracy.

    No fucking way Cruise gave her a kiss. Wrong gender.

    It's a good thing she didn't come across an accident; she would have had to stop because, as a Scientologist, she's best suited to help
  7. New unauthorized bio, while claiming that KH was impregnated with L. Ron Hubbard's Unfrozen Caveman Sperm, also claims that Tom is not gay.

    I can only address the issue of split times. Yes, runners who do these things together often have identical split times; that's not unusual in the least. They're never more than a couple of feet from one another except at water or restroom stops, etc.

    Interviewer: Have you been doing a lot of intervals?
    Rosie Ruiz Mrs. Hubbard: Umm...somebody else asked me that. I'm not quite sure what those are. What are they?

    You'll forgive me if I don't think a site that calls itself "Celebitchy.com" is completely on the up-and-up.
