Fit & Trim Valerie Bertinelli Finishes Half-Marathon

Valerie Bertinelli says:

After crossing the finish line of Sunday's Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half-Marathon in yet another personal first, Valerie Bertinelli told PEOPLE "I can't believe I did it!"

Next on Bertinelli's to-do list? "My trainer thinks I'm going to do a [full] marathon before I'm 50. I have till April," she says. "I'm not committing yet! I haven't wrapped my head around it. We're negotiating."

I am happy with Valerie Bertinelli accomplishments. Yet, as her commercials state results not typical. I think having 50 year old person running full marathons is over kill and is not necessarily the be all and end all of health achievement.


  1. That's funny we both posted on Marathons today!

    Yeah, a marathon at 50 might actually reverse someone's gains by resulting in injury.

    If its always been your dream, go for it, but this looks like an over-ambitious trainer trying to get more personal publicity to me.

  2. I'm really happy Valerie has gotten to a good weight and all but I can't believe that eating pre-packaged foods is good for body or mind.

    As for the marathon, I just don't know...
