Doherty To Run London Marathon

British rocker PETE DOHERTY has made his biggest statement yet he is serious about kicking his drug habit - by training for London's gruelling 42-kilometre (26-mile) marathon. The Babyshambles star is desperate to improve his health and shed the weight he gained during a stint in rehab, and so has agreed to take part in next year's annual sporting event (08). A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "He knows that people will be surprised by his efforts to be healthier but he really wants to turn over a new leaf. A spokesman for Doherty says, "There is some truth to this - you never know what could happen."

God Bless Pete Doherty and love him. Hopefully he can move on with his life as other musicians have done to live healthy and prosperous lives. He is very talented and those talents will take him places. He's just had a rough start. But hopefully thats all behind him now. Love you Pete!!!!
