    “read the comments on the rnr page. Kate didn’t run the race. She was on the sidelines and riding to the checkpoints on someones tomos scooter and at every checkpoint, the announcers gave platitudes to Kate and none of the other runners. Pissed many of the committed runners off.
    It was a paid appearance to garner support for a race and a charity that isn’t a 501c3 organization and like everything in Las Vegas, what happens there, stays there. Her bodyguard didn’t walk the entire course carrying a pink handbag. He was on a scooter pacing her for 3 miles and then picking her up and pacing the race to keep the shoe tag legit. When they came to a checkpoint at 500 feet, Kate jumped off as the crowd and contestants were too busy to notice. Kate made all the check points. She actually completed the marathon but she didn’t do it toe to heel.

      Did anyone take pics or video of this? It’s so irritating, if it’s true. Also, I’ve heard nothing but complaints about that race, about how poorly it was managed….

      hahahhahhaa that’s hilarious! 44000 runners, complaints of overcrowding but you expect people to believe a scooter managed it’s way down there to keep some pace for Kate Gosselin?
      Kate does attract some mucho weirdo haters.

    That story is a lie. The person who posted in on Facebook wasn’t even registered in the race. KateG seems attract some weird haters on the net who make up stuff.

    Opps – I meant to reply to the post about KateG not running the marathon. That is lie. She ran. One person made stuff up on facebook, it looks like a brand new facebook account and the person who posted it wasn’t register for the marathon but claimed she ran.
