Kate Runs in Vegas Marathon, Housewives Star Has Kate Gosselin Crush! Not Filming With Jon Again

PEOPLE.COM: She's used to chasing after her children (and at times being chased by paparazzi) but Kate Gosselin had a different reason to be running down the famous Las Vegas Strip on Sunday. The mother of eight, who bundled up on an unusually chilly night with a top that said "Finishing Is Winning," completed the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon – her first marathon – in 4 hours, 59 minutes and 21 seconds.

"I'm not one to do anything lightly," Gosselin, 36, told PEOPLE before running the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon. "I either do it or I kill it. I guess this is considered killing it." Gosselin, who's been a runner for three years, trained for the marathon on the roads near her Wernersville, Pa., home, often in below-freezing temperatures. And by finishing 26.2 miles, Gosselin hopes to set an example for her children.

"I'm running this because I want to show that with dedication and determination anything is possible," she said. "I want them to remember this moment when their mom completed a marathon, knowing that nothing in life should stop them from attaining their goals." The lesson does come at a cost, however: "This will probably be one of the most painful messages I will ever impart to them," she said. via Yahoo: Could a new reality TV couple be in the works?
According to Access Hollywood Live's Kit Hoover, the recently-single Tareq Salahi, formerly of Bravo's "Real Housewives of D.C.," has a crush on Kate Gosselin. "Tareq Salahi e-mailed me personally," Kit revealed on Thursday's show. "He wants to be set up with Kate Gosselin." Kit explained that Tareq is interested in the former TLC "Kate Plus 8" star, who appeared on Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday. "He said, 'Is she really single?'" Kit recounted. In his e-mail, Tareq wrote, "Set us up if she is." And Kit had a promise for Tareq, who is currently embroiled in a divorce with estranged wife Michaele, who left him in a very public way for Journey's Neal Schon. "Tareq, I'm totally on it," Kit said of trying to set him up with Kate. Do you think Tareq and Kate would make a good couple?
