Jimmie Johnson doesn’t need a car to go fast — the NASCAR driver is running the Boston Marathon and he’s CRUSHING IT SO FAR … on pace to finish right around the 3-hour mark!!
43-year-old Johnson’s been training for months with the goal of breaking the 3-hour mark … and at the time of this post, he’s almost at the halfway point — on pace for a 3:03 final time based on his splits.
What’s even more amazing … Jimmie’s never completed a marathon before!
Oh, and on Saturday, he was RACING CARS — he competed in the Toyota Owners 400, a 300-mile race at the Richmond Raceway in Virginia.
Jimmie is wearing bib #4848 during the marathon, a tribute to his #48 car.
Johnson says he’s always wanted to run the marathon but his NASCAR schedule got in the way — but this year, NASCAR shifted the schedule, which freed him up to run.
During his training, Johnson suffered injuries to his pelvis, left calf and IT band — but battled through it … and he’s out there running right now!!
