Carole Radziwill absolutely crushed the New York City Marathon last weekend. The Real Housewives of New York City author completed the 26-mile course around the Big Apple in 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 6 seconds, according to her results page on the New York Road Runners website.
Not only were Carole's loved ones like Tinsley Mortimer and Adam Kenworthy cheering her on from the sidelines, but tons of people — make that thousands, to be precise — followed along with Carole's progress from possibly anywhere in the world that day. Carole was the second most-tracked runner in this year's New York City Marathon with about 16,000 followers, a New York Road Runners spokesman recently told Page Six.
Which runner had the most followers this year, you ask? Well, it was Kevin Hart. No, not that Kevin Hart, although that's who tens of thousands of people probably meant to actually follow, since the comedian and actor also ran the marathon that day. No, Kevin Hart of Hollywood, Florida had the most followers, with nearly 23,000.
The Kevin Hart you know and love completed the New York City Marathon in 4 hours, 5 minutes, and 6 seconds.
Karlie Kloss somehow still managed to look absolutely gorgeous while running the marathon.
So Carole is basically the most-followed celeb in this year's race, if you really think about it. "I believe that makes me the number one most-tracked runner of people not mistaken for someone else," Carole joked in an email to The Daily Dish. "It was an honor to pay respect to the city I love. I hope I inspired others to do the one thing they thought they couldn't."
Carole thanked all of her followers for their support as she conquered this major accomplishment, which she ran on behalf of the North Shore Animal League, the shelter from where she adopted her two cats. "To everyone who followed my progress. Who left messages, DMs, tweets, I wouldn't have gotten this without your support & well wishes," Carole captioned a photo of her marathon medal on Instagram. "Special thanks to my family, framily & friends who waited hours in the rain."
Bethenny Frankel cheered Carole on prior to her running the marathon, telling The Daily Dish that she's "so proud of her" and that "she's amazing" (clip above). Ramona Singer also gave Carole a huge mazel on Instagram. "Congratulations to @caroleradziwill for completing the #NYCMarathon!" Ramona gushed. "Such an amazing accomplishment! I am so proud of you!"
