Rocker TRAVIS BARKER is set to follow in the footsteps of JENNIFER LOPEZ and MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY and compete in a marathon.
The Blink-182 drummer has a new outlook on life after a plane crash last year (08) - and now he’s reportedly getting in shape so he can take on the 26.2 mile (42.2 kilometre) sporting challenge.
A source tells America’s Star magazine, “He’s registered for the Los Angeles Marathon on May 25. He’s been running all over Hollywood, trying to train.”
Barker and his DJ pal Adam Goldstein narrowly escaped with their lives when a private jet ferrying them back to Los Angeles after a concert crashed on take-off in South Carolina and burst into flames.
Two associates and the two-man pilot crew onboard were killed in the tragedy, which left both Barker and Goldstein with severe burns all over their bodies. (WENN/MT/TS/KL)
