Skip to comments.Sarah Palin runs Marathon with a blazing time of 3:59:36

So intent is the MSM in finding negative stories on Sarah Palin, that they just happen to overlook her amazing accomplishments.
Sarah Palin not only finished Anchorage's 2005 Humpys Marathon , but with a blazing time of 3:59:36, fourth in her age group, and only 9 1/2 minutes off the qualifying time for the Boston Marathon .
The only news source that has noted Palin's athletic bent is the WSJ Weekend Edition , which makes no mention of her marathon feat.
This has relevance to the MSM harping that Palin was picked for her looks. Palin still looks great at age 44 because she is in fantastic shape; being in shape didn't happen by accident, but due to Palin's healthy lifestyle (with avoidance of tobacco ), and exemplary determination and discipline.
Here is a photograph of Palin in the Governor's office. One immediately notices that Palin is attractive. The reason she is attractive as she is at age 44, is that she is a super fit marathon runner. If Palin is still especially good looking, it is in no small part because she has earned it.
That's something liberals will never, ever (EVER) understand.
Anyone know where I can get a high res version of that bear photo for my desktop?
One of the dangers of all this........and one that I don’t think Sarah’s gonna fall into, with her independent streak....is trying to respond to every ludicrous ‘accusation’ or idiotic ‘point’ leveled at her by the MSM.
Just ignore the rat (...or is it ‘Rat?) bastids. Who cares what she looks like? This is childish nonsense (not your post, FRiend.....the MSM’s focusing on her looks, etc.).
That, and real women.
if I am reading that right if she did that today she would qualify for the Boston Marathon.
..it takes me 4 minutes to get in my car
Holy Cow! That is a GREAT TIME!
I’ve been busting my butt for years now and I am in the best shape of MY LIFE and I couldn’t get close to that time...
Oh please. This is no big deal. When you are at the top of the globe, it is ALL downhill. Makes running much easier. < /SARCASM! >

It takes stoners in Austin Texas 4 hours to get motivated to go out for breakfast.
Could be the understatement of the year! In a perfect world, she'd be unmarried with a yen for old, over-the-hill, retired, ex-university professors, but I digress...
Daughter, sister, wife, mother, mayor, Governor, Vice Presidential Nominee.
A Phenomenal woman from great stock, strong stock, intelligence, wit, strength, full of love, able to do it all, hockey mom, mom of a military member, mom who chose to have her beautiful baby Trig no matter what... still with her high school sweetheart of overf 22 years and still in love with him. Just look at her kids. Calm, mannerly, knowing how to act...even down to the smallest little guy who is so good. Little Piper slicking down his hair. What a doll face that little girl is and will steal the hearts of billions.
Governor Sarah Palin...a bright spot in the world.
A burr under the saddle of the lefties
It’s truly a “green time” especially in the dem/lib/leftie party because that old green monster called JEALOUSY is rearing it’s ugly head since Governor Palin came on the scene.
Be afraid opposition...you have every right to be.
Is that Larry King Crab on the table? .. or Ann Curry.
We need affirmative action for ugly people. Maybe they can get free plastic surgery under nationalized health care... And maybe really good looking people like Sarah Palin can be forced to wear glasses, formless suits, and ridiculous beehive hairdos...
Wait a minute...
Hokey smoke, that is a great time indeed.
All the guys around here might try to chase after Sarah, but there precious few that could catch her. Good thing Todd had his snow machine.
I've got some bad news for you. It doesn't help.
Next they will be saying she has crabs.
Pelosi: Where the hell is the Kryptonite?
