One of my many loves, Ryan Reynolds, accomplished a big goal on Sunday -- he finished the New York City marathon -- and did it in 3 hours and 50 minutes!

 

"I'm still standing. I'm very excited about that," he told reporters after crossing the finish line. "It was an incredible experience."

Ryan, who was taking on the challenge in order to raise money for the fight against Parkinson's disease, said that catching a glimpse of one particular spectator lit a fire under him.

"When I saw Michael J. Fox on Fifth Avenue, I gained about 15 pounds in goose bumps," said Ry. "It kind of pushed me through the last six miles or so."

Ryan was running for Team Fox, in honor of his own dad, who had been suffering from Parkinson's for the past 15 years. "[During the race] I thought a lot about my father and Michael and the 500,000 other people afflicted with this awful disease in the United States alone. I ran for those who can't," Ryan told People.com.

You wanna talk about goose bumps!

So, how would Scarlett Johansson's hubby celebrate his big finish? "I'll probably celebrate by eating my own body weight in raw dough."

Love him.
