Dana Carvey said that his running career took off when his brother would chase him and threaten him with various blunt objects. “I ran, so help me God, I ran,” he explained to Spikes Magazine. Although the
Wayne’s World actor’s rumored time seems to be the only evidence that this marathon actually existed, it’s widely believed that Carvey is the one to beat among celebrity marathon runners. Of course, this all occurred when he was just 22, well before he joined
Saturday Night Live or became addicted to
red rope licorice. But, Carvey told Spikes, running still holds a special place in his routine. “After a big laugh, I do wind sprints to celebrate,” he joked.
