Running 26.2 miles might sound like a nightmare to most people, but try doing it through the streets of Pyongyang, North Korea.

The reclusive country opened its annual Pyongyang Marathon to international runners for the first time in the event's 27-year history.

Kim Jong Un did not compete, but the Social Climber is sure that if he had, he would have won the race.

Instead, North Korea's Pak Chol crossed the finish line first with a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes and 26 seconds. North Korean twin sisters Kim Hye Gyong and Kim Hye Song took the top two spots in the women's race with a time of 2:27:04 for the winner, the Associated Press reported.

Jennifer Lopez got personal this weekend when she accepted GLAAD's Vanguard award for her work as executive producer on the ABC Family show "The Fosters."

One of the reasons Lopez said she chose to produce the show, which follows a lesbian couple’s raising a family, was because of her Aunt Marisa.

"Marisa [was] gay in a time [when] life could be very difficult, and that her struggles were mostly kept to herself," Lopez said, according to US Weekly. "It wasn’t until I got older that I really got to know and appreciate the difficulties that she dealt with and the struggles of her community."

Jennifer Lawrence picked up an MTV award this weekend for her performance as Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." The actress was absent from the awards show, but if she had been there, the Social Climber is sure she would have tripped or done something to be her outrageously charming self.

Lawrence's co-star Josh Hutcherson, who was there, swooped up the best male performance award for his role as Peeta Mellark in the film.

On Sunday, he was greeted by his 2-year-old son after clinching his second green jacket, joining an elite group at Augusta.

"This one's a lot different," Watson told The Associated Press. "The first one, for me, it was almost like I lucked into it."

Here's proof that guys named Bubba can go on to greatness. Check out 10 famous Bubbas, including Watson, here.
