Victoria Beckham to run New York marathon

Victoria Beckham reportedly set to follow in her best pal Katie Holmes' footsteps and run the New York Marathon.

The former Spice Girl has allegedly been training in secret for the event in the Big Apple this Sunday.

Holmes completed the run in five hours, 29 minutes and 58 seconds, and now Beckham is set to take on the same feat.

A source told 'Now' magazine: "It was meant to be a big secret. She's been training for months with the main goal of running in the New York marathon.

"But, if she doesn't feel ready, she's planning to do the one in Los Angeles in February next year."

Beckham's soccer ace husband David has reportedly been giving her fitness tips to get the singer-turned-designer into shape.

And the couple has put plans to expand their family on hold for the time being so Beckham can achieve her goal.

The insider added: "She wants to get the run out of the way because once she gets pregnant it'll be ages before she has the opportunity again.
