I am not going to lie to you and say that I am an athlete. I like to dabble in my yoga and pilates, but running has always seemed to escape me, so when I see anyone running (especially, a marathon) by choice my mind is blown with jealousy and admiration. The always fabulous Uzo Aduba is currently preparing for this year's Boston Marathon, which takes place on April 20, running as part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s marathon challenge.

This is not the Orange Is The New Black actress' first marathon, and she is just one in the list of many fellow celebrities who have gone from spectator to participant to raise money for the causes they are passionate about. And I don't know about you, but knowing they willingly ran over 26 miles gives them a little extra check in my book.
