Stern co-host Robin Quivers finishes New York City Marathon, credits vegan diet

Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers finished her New York City Marathon debut in 6 hours and 9 minutes with funds raised benefiting two childhood nutrition programs—The Sylvia Center and Family Cook Productions—through her charity 15 Foundation.

In an article on Huffington Post Quivers writes, “I'm nutty for nutrition. I've become one of those people who can't stop talking about the connection between food and health. Like a lot of people, I used to think I was incapable of doing anything about the way I felt everyday. Now that I know how much changing what you eat can transform your life, I can't stop proselytizing.”

Quivers credits her switch to a vegan diet in 2007 for helping her shed 80 pounds and giving her the strength and energy to run the race.

  1. Good Job Robin

  2. Finished the race in over 6 hours? Would that be roughly 42,500th place out of 45,000? I think the trapped miner from Chile finished in roughly 5 hours 40 minutes.
    Must have been a LOT of slow walking.
    I know what running a marathon takes, having run 50, including 7 in NYC and never that slow. I'm not a vegan or compulsive runner either just a regular guy.

  3. 13.5 minute miles is running?

  4. I think its amazing that she can run that much at her age! And she looks fabulous!

  5. The haters are amazing. I guarantee they are a bunch of fat a^&es that couldn't run a 70 minute mile.

  6. way to go robin. i'm sure "hateman" is gonna have plenty to say.

    and yeah, the fact that robin did a marathon at all is cool -- who cares that it's not a good time. friggin haters.

  7. Hey regular guy who's done a 50k before. Do you ever remember the first time you ran? No? Maybe because you have always been a runner? Starting to be a runner after being overweight most of your life and never active is a damn hard thing to do. Good for Robin! I can't wait to hear what she does next year, because as you know, you only get better. And it the time shouldn't matter. It's the fact that she did it. So please get over yourself.
