Kate Gosselin has spent the last 11 years of her life running around after her eight children, but the reality star-turned-blogger checked a major item off her bucket list this weekend by running her first marathon.

Gosselin, 36, completed the Zappos.com Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in Las Vegas on Sunday, according to RadarOnline.com.

"Woke up&realized its M DAY!...Some fear but mostly excitement! I'm carbed up&almost rdy.....tired of thinking @ it...so let's run already!" Gosselin tweeted Sunday morning.

"I'm making the walk....of death, lol! Here I go! Game on!!!!" she wrote before hitting the pavement.

The mom also showed off the shirt she wore for the big race, which read "Finishing Is Winning" on the front and "My First 26.2 For All the Nonbelievers" on the back.

Gosselin, who put her reality life behind her --for now, at least -- when TLC canceled "Kate Plus 8," has moved on to a new profession: blogging about bargain hunting for CouponCabin.com.

But her new gig isn't the only reason Gosselin has been in the public eye recently. After sporting a fresher-looking face recently, rumors started up that the reality mom has had a facelift -- stories she has completely denied.

Kate Gosselin Facelift?
