While you were probably still in bed or making a bagel run, Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer was out running. Really far. For charity. She's just that awesome.
Swapping Margaery Tyrell's gowns for leggings and a purple running jacket, the English actress completed the Virgin Money London Marathon today, finishing the 26.3-mile course in three hours and 50 minutes. Big ups, lady!
That finish time puts Dormer ahead of fellow participant Dominic "McNulty" West, who came in at four hours and 43 minutes. As far as celebrity marathoners go, she falls just behind Ryan Reynolds and ahead of Will Ferrell and Diddy.
But, it's more than just scoring bragging rights. Dormer's run raised £6,513 (about $10,900 U.S.) for the Barnado's charity. According to her fundraising page, Barnado's "transforms the lives of the most vulnerable children through its services, campaigning, and research, [addressing] issues such as child poverty, sexual abuse and exploitation, disability, mental health, alcohol and substance abuse, and domestic violence."
Let's all give this gal a virtual pat on the back. Lesson learned: Never underestimate the house of Tyrell, for they are Growing Strong.
