The Marathon Show has included me in The Most Interesting People of 2010. Host Joe Taricani put together a spectacular group of runners from around the country–Illinois, Florida, Washington, Virginia, North Carolina, Mississippi, New York and more–who have run marathons for charity, PR’s and fun, including some who ran just one marathon, like me, to a duo who are running 106 marathons by Dec. 31 to nab the Guinness World Record for most marathons in a year.
The Marathon Show singled me out for singing at and running in the 2010 ING New York City Marathon to a personal record, along with my work on the Washington Times Communities and “Run, Karla, Run!” Be sure to check it out.
