Sarah Palin ‘Secretly’ Runs Storm Lake Half Marathon

Political hot-button Sarah Palin, the controversial star of Tea Party gatherings across the country, ‘secretly’ ran the Storm Lake (Iowa) Half Marathon (website) yesterday in a time of 1:46:10.

Palin has been traveling all across Iowa giving speeches to rouse up the Tea Party and interest in her own Presidential ambitions (she has yet to say she is running for the office).

She signed up for the half-marathon under her maiden name Sarah Heath.

Several runners eventually noticed Palin who started near the back of the pack before working her way past the walkers:

This afternoon, Palin tweeted “Thank you, Storm Lake, Iowa. You put on a great event & we loved meeting some great folks in your beautiful town today!”

The official results showed that Palin (Heath) came in 2nd place in her age division, just 1 minute and 5 seconds behind the age division winner.  The overall female winner, Lindsey Meyer, ran a 1:38:10.  Justin Helbing was the overall winner with a time of 1:18:52.

Palin is an avid runner and has completed marathons in the past.
