The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Pamela Anderson Finishes NYC Marathon, Raises Thousands (Race Splits)

Former Baywatch star, Pamela Anderson, ran and finished the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday.

Anderson, previously best known in running circles for her iconic and sexy runs across the beach as lifeguard ‘C.J. Parker’, ran a bit longer and further Sunday in New York.

She ran the marathon, with her brother Gerry, to raise money and awareness for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. She was able to raise over $76,000.00 according to the NY Daily News.

Pamela, like most of us after our first marathon, felt pretty beat up afterwards. She tweeted the below photo from her hotel bed where her face is covered with her race bib and parts of her body with ice bags. It’s a great photo and very different from the images of the beauty that have appeared in Playboy for over two decades. [Bonus points for using marathon swag bags for ice bags.]

The 46-year old Anderson completed the NYC Marathon with a time of 5:41:03.

Her splits are below as follows:

First Name Last Name Finish
Time
5 km 10 km 15 km 20 km 13.1 mi 25 km 30 km 35 km 40 km Pace
PAMELA ANDERSON 05:41:03 31:20 1:04:03 1:37:55 2:15:37 2:24:26 2:58:09 3:40:58 4:28:05 5:18:13 13:02

Pamela posted solid 5k – half marathon splits during the race. She was running a 11:01 pace at the half marathon split. She faded pretty hard the second half with a large positive split (longer second half), but that’s the norm for almost all of us in our first marathon and for many to come after.  If she were to do another one, she’d like do it a lot faster, especially if she didn’t have a large crowds to deal with from the back of the pack.

Impressive feat at ING NYC for Pamela and she should be applauded. Whether hard core marathon vets like it or not, celebs like Pamela bring a lot of attention to the sport and inspire John or Jane Doe to get off the couch and try to do the same. “If Pam Anderson can do it then so can I!”

She posted her finisher’s medal like the rest of us marathoners and half marathons do on Facebook and Twitter for all her friends (and thousands of fans) to see:
