Kerry daughter wants to run (Says she will run Boston Marathon "just like her dad.")
Boston Globe ^ | February 16, 2005 | Carol Beggy & Mark Shanahan

Posted on 02/16/2005 10:34:08 AM PST by Land_of_Lincoln_John

GOING THE DISTANCE Following in her father's footsteps, Vanessa Kerry is training to run in the Boston Marathon. John Kerry's youngest daughter is studying in London on a Fulbright scholarship, but told friends in a recent e-mail that she's training for the April race. (Her father has said he competed in the late 1970s.) In the e-mail, Kerry said she's running as part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's marathon team and invited friends to visit the Dana-Farber website and make a donation supporting cancer research. (Among those who've responded are famous friends: singer Carole King and Al Gore's middle daughter, Kristin Gore.) Reached yesterday in Bozeman, Mont., where her mother, Julia Thorne, lives, Kerry declined to specify her reasons for running the marathon, but said that her parents, both of whom have been treated for cancer, are an inspiration. ''It's for everybody I've known who's had cancer," said the third-year Harvard Medical School student. ''It's a way for me to be involved in something positive and proactive after the election."

Funny, but when you inspect the official results of the Boston Marathon in the Back Bay neighborhood of the Hub City, you'll find that John Kerry is not listed as an official finisher in the time period he purportedyly ran it. He claims, however, to have been an unofficial registrant, and ran it as "a bandit."

I gather if she runs for this charity she does not need to meet the qualifying time. Probably a decent way to get into the race.

(been trying for 8 years to qualify. still not there yet.)

Anyone?

just read the article. this guy has delusions of grandeur! not only was he in cambodia and vietnam simultaneously in '68, he was in boston and new york at the same time in '86, and to top it off, he runs marathons and doesnt even keep mementos! Omnipresent? This guy thinks he's God.

I think that if she eats a good diet, rich in HAY and OATS, with molasses as well, she'll do fine.

Her Father has squat thanks to a pre-nup and a 3 million dollar mortgage on his only property.

Was wondering if this is the same daughter that showed her "knockers" back during the campaign.
Didnt look that bad but I've seen lots better.
You would think that with all that money she could afford implants......

Last time I checked, you had to qualify for the Boston Marathon by running another Marathon in a certain time.

I guess the usual rules don't apply to prviledged Democrats.

Yeah, she pulled up lame a couple of weeks ago, that healed, and now she had a few burrs under her saddle. The vet perscribed rest and lots of oats before the race. I think he wormed her too.

Do you think she will be running in a see through dress? That's what either her or her sister wore at the Fashion show before the election. Maybe it was her sister. And why is her sister on a scholarship? Can't she afford college? Isn't there someone less fortunate who could benefit from that scholarship she is using?

He claims, however, to have been an unofficial registrant, and ran it as "a bandit."

In the Rosie Ruiz division, no doubt.

Does that mean the hospital was 5k from the crash site?

Whatever her reasons if she can run the 26 miles then she deserves some credit.

You're right. He WAS spotted in the Mid-East. I guess he heard that Mommy-T dumped his name so now it's time to bag another meal-ticket.
