Despite a bum right knee, hip-hop mogul Sean "P-Diddy" Combs finished today's New York City Marathon in four-hours and 14-minutes. He decided in September to run the 26-mile race, which was his first, to raise money for New York city public schools.
P-Diddy said his goal was to raise a million dollars, but he ended up doubling that.
