Kate Gosselin Completes Las Vegas Strip Marathon

Kate Gosselin took to the streets of Las Vegas on Sunday to compete in the cities marathon which includes a run down the world famous Vegas strip.

The former Kate Plus 8 (cancelled) star and mother of eight children finished the Zappos.com Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon in 4 hours, 59 minutes and 21 seconds.

Kate bundled up on an unusually cold night for Las Vegas, wearing a top that read “Finishing Is Winning.”

After the race Gosselin told PEOPLE:

“I’m not one to do anything lightly,” while adding, “I either do it or I kill it. I guess this is considered killing it.”

Gosselin trained for the race near her home in Wernersville, Pennsylvania, often running in below freezing cold temperatures in preparation for the event.

The marathon was 26.2 miles long and Kate says she wanted to use the race to show her children that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and have the determination needed to succeed.

I simply can’t get over the fact that everything she does is likely carefully planned for press coverage and I hardly call five hours “killing it” but the message is a good one to teach anyone striving for a goal.

What do you think of Kate Gosselin’s message to her children.
