Actress Sara Rue has completed her first half marathon after racing to the finish line in the City to Sea run in California on Sunday (10Oct10).
The former Eastwick star, 32, became the celebrity spokeswoman for U.S. diet firm Jenny Craig earlier this year (10) and shed 50 pounds (22.68 kilograms) on the weight loss programme.
She set herself a new personal goal to compete in her first race as part of her new fitness regime and completed the 13.1 mile (21 kilometre) task with her trainer Christopher Lane in two hours, 27 minutes.
And Rue is amazed by her latest achievement.
She tells People.com, "I feel so happy! It's awesome! I'm in the best shape of my life. Less than seven, eight months ago I couldn't even run a mile. This has really been empowering."
