Drew Carey Shows Speed and Determination
Comedian Drew Carey, who fired the starting pistol and then ran his first half marathon, made a surprising finish of 1:57:02. "The Price Is Right" host expected to complete the run in just over two hours. "Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would finish in two hours, it really felt good," said Carey.
