The New York Marathon website allows you to look up the times of various runners, so we plugged in the names of the three fashion notables who were rumored to run this weekend: Models Anne Vyalitsyna and Veronica Webb, and dreamy designer Yigal Azrouël. Vyaltisyna's name didn't appear at all, perhaps because she entered as a guide to a disabled runner, rather than as a contestant herself. Webb Twittered that she finished in six hours, but the runner tracker—which operates via a GSP device runners wear on their ankles—doesn't have any times for her at all. As for Azrouël, he clocked in at 3:42:43, an impressive time even if he didn't beat his goal of three and a half hours. [New York City Marathon]
