There will be plenty of recognizable runners in the crowd at the New York City Marathon on Sunday.
Al Roker, cancer survivor Ethan Zohn, Chilean miner Edison Peña, Howard Stern sidekick Robin Quivers, Anthony Edwards, Ryan Sutter and Veronica Webb are among this year's celebrity participants.
"Almost everybody's bucket list includes running the ING New York City Marathon," Roker said in a statement. "Just the though of being able to start this race gives me goose bumps. As does the fear that the weather might turn ugly."
