NEW YORK - Katie Holmes was among the tens of thousands of runners participating in Sunday's New York City Marathon, finishing the race in 5 hours, 29 minutes, and 58 seconds.
Husband Tom Cruise and their daughter, Suri, were at the finish line to congratulate the actress.
Holmes, a graduate of Toledo's Notre Dame Academy, had registered under an alias so she wouldn't draw too much attention to herself, event officials said, but her time was listed in the official results under her real name.
The 26.2-mile course travels through all five boroughs of the city, starting on Staten Island and finishing in Manhattan's Central Park. This year, 39,085 runners started the race. Paula Radcliffe of Great Britain won the women's race in 2 hours, 23 minutes, 9 seconds. Martin Lel of Kenya won the men's title in 2:09:04.
Holmes has said she has always liked to run, and took it up to help lose weight after giving birth to Suri, who is now a year old.
