P.Diddy Finishes Marathon, Doubles $1 Million Dollar Goal

After only 8 weeks

of training, Sean "P.Diddy" Combs ran the 26.2 mile 2003 ING New York

Marathon in 3 hours and 58 minutes.

"Not only

did I meet my goals, I exceeded them," Combs told AllHipHop.com. "I

raised $2 million for the children of New York City. I want to thank God for

giving me the strength to finish what I started & the people of New York

for their support."

Combs, who ran

as Number 30,792, raised the $2 million dollars for various children's charities,

doubling the $1 million dollar goal he set.

Combs ran a steady

eight to nine minute miles for the race on a sore knee, accompanied by police

and one of his employee's.

The mogul ran with

his hair cropped in a mohawk, a breathing strip on his nose and sunglasses on

his face.

While reports of

Combs finishing the race in 4 hours and 14 minutes, Combs said a chip in his

sneaker captured the 3 hour and 58 minute time.

On Monday, Combs

will leave to tape an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.
