Bill Murray ditches the 'Late Show' to train for the NYC marathon

Bill Murray is a very busy man—and sometimes, being very busy means going for a run in a tux in the middle of a talk show interview.

On last night’s Late Show, Murray realized that he was less than a month away from the NYC Marathon. Apparently, he’d made a promise to himself that he was going to enter this year. In a panic that he wouldn’t have enough time to train, Murray took his interview on the run. After putting a little Bengay on his hands—to help with his achy knees, obviously—Murray took off for a quick, marathon-worthy sprint around the block, during which he stole from strangers and realized what it feels like to be born again.
