Edward Norton Bests Sarah Palin's Time In His New York City Marathon Run

The annual New York City Marathon went down yesterday. Among the thousands of runners was "The Incredible Hulk" star Edward Norton and his new Maasai warrior friends. The group of them ran in support of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. Norton even interrupted his training last week to stop by the office for a chat about the charity stunt.

One thing we learned during Norton's visit, not seen in the video above, was his plan to beat the running time of former Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. She posted a time of just less than four hours when she ran in 2005. Norton took that as a challenge, telling MTV's Josh Horowitz "I'm gonna beat Sarah Palin like a rug!" So how did he do?

Norton probably breathed a big sigh of relief when he crossed that finish line at 3:48:01. Mainly because the 26 mile run was finally over, I expect. I imagine that at least a part of him was immensely pleased with the knowledge that he ran it faster than Palin.
