Marathon Man Ryan

Newlywed Ryan Reynolds, who was recently married to Scarlett Johannson in Canada, is planning on running his first marathon.

He is not a fan of running, getting out of bed at the crack of dawn, feeling the burn in his lungs or having his nipples bleed. But he is planning on showing up on November 2nd, to run 26.2 miles in the New York City Marathon none the less.

So why is he doing it then? For his dad, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease. Ryan is trying to raise money and awareness for the disease.

He wrote a pretty heartfelt letter about it that you can read here.

Good luck Ryan! I've been there and its not easy but SO worth it.
