Chocs away, as Caroline opts for a big run

Tennis superstar Caroline Wozniacki isn't taking her shock break-up with Rory McIlroy lying down.

A normal reaction to a break-up should really involve getting embedded on the sofa to binge-watch rom coms, while stuffing your face with choccies.

Going on the batter with your mates is another sure-fire way of getting over that ex-boyfriend who has just exited stage left.

But if your man has done a runner then I would strongly advise not to become a runner. There are seriously much easier ways to get over a guy!

Caroline Wozniacki was due to marry our Rory this month but their planned wedding was called off by him earlier this year.

So to get over her commitment-phobic fella, Caroline committed to running the New York marathon in under four hours.

It didn't look too promising last week as Wozniacki partied til the wee hours three days before her first marathon and hadn't run more than 13 miles in training.

Caroline also spent Saturday night eating popcorn with Serena Williams at a hockey game. Grabbing two bagels just before the race also didn't inspire confidence!

But she ran the marathon in 3 hours, 26 minutes, 33 seconds.

In your face, Rory.
