Oprah Runs a Marathon

Aired on 11/07/1994 | CC
In 1987, Oprah vowed to herself that she would run a marathon by the time she turned 40. That dream, all 26.2 painful miles of it, came true in 1994 when she participated in the Marine Corps Marathon, in Arlington, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

The rain was coming down hard that day, and reporters from The National Enquirer ran alongside Oprah to get the scoop on her first long-distance run. From the personal training sessions that led up to the race to the momentous final stretch as she neared the finish line, watch as Oprah realizes one of her biggest dreams.
