Pamela Anderson Running on Baywatch as C.J. Parker

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
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:

Mutai, Keitany Win World Marathon Majors After NYC Marathon Cancellation

Mutai, Keitany Win World Marathon Majors After NYC Marathon Cancellation

The World Marathon Majors® (WMM) has decided that Geoffrey Mutai (Kenya) and Mary Keitany (Kenya) are the champions of the 2011-2012 World Marathon Majors Series, in the wake of the cancellation of the 2012 New York City Marathon.

From BAA: With the cancellation of the 2012 ING New York City Marathon, the 2011-2012 Series has concluded and there will be no additional points awarded. Mutai had already secured the Series title in advance of the New York race with 75 points tallied in winning the 2011 Boston Marathon, the 2011 ING New York City Marathon, and the 2012 BMW Berlin Marathon. Keitany secured the title with 65 points accumulated with victories at the 2011 and 2012 Virgin London Marathons, and a third place finish at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon. These athletes will split the $1 million prize purse.

The New York City Marathon, that was scheduled for November 4, 2012, was cancelled after Hurricane Sandy struck the area leaving massive devastation and loss of human life.

NYRR president Mary Wittenberg along with NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided less than 40 hours before the start of the scheduled marathon to cancel the race after announcing earlier in the week that the race would proceed as planned.

  1. Geoffrey Mutai (Kenya) – 75 points

NYC Marathon Medal 2011

ING New York City Marathon Medal (2011)

It took a couple of days, but we’ve finally landed a photo of the 2011 ING New York City Marathon medal from the race that took place on November 6, 2011.

No wonder it took so long. This medal is several levels below average.

You’d think with the NYC Marathon being such a large marathon that they’d spend a little coin on a finisher’s medal worthy of this prestigious event.

It’s not the worst medal we’ve ever seen, but it is very 5K’ish for sure.

Jennie Finch Starting the 2011 NYC Marathon

Jennie Finch Passes 30,000 Runners at NYC Marathon to Raise $30,000 for Charity

Legendary softball player Jennie Finch completed the 2011 ING NYC Marathon on Sunday.  She finished with a time of 4:05:26.

Finch was the VERY last runner to start the race, but there was a reason for her caboose start.

Her publicist emailed this to me after the race:

Hope all is well! Thought you might be interested to know that Jennie Finch just ran the New York City marathon just four months after giving birth to her second son.

Though she is best known around the world for her 70+ mile an hour fastball, this morning the Olympic softball legend Jennie Finch’s speed was measured a little differently. She hit the “Start” button on her Timex GPS watch to begin the 2011 ING New York City marathon dead last and for each runner she passed, Timex donated $1 to the New York Road Runners Youth Programs. Finch crossed the finish line with an unofficial time of 4:05:26, passing approximately 30,000 people.

Congrats to Jennie and a special thank you to her sponsor, Timex, for donating so much money to the New York Road Runners Youth Programs!

9-Time NYC Marathon Champ Grete Waitz

9-Time NYC Marathon Champ Grete Waitz Dead at 57

Norwegian Grete Waitz, one of if not the greatest female marathoner of all-time, has lost a long term battle with cancer at the age of 57-years old on Tuesday (April 19, 2011) in Oslo, Norway.  She had been battling the disease since 2005.

Waitz won the New York City Marathon 9 times. A feat that will never be matched again.  She won every NYC Marathon from 1978 to 1988 with the exceptions of 1981 when Allison Roe won and 1987 when Priscilla Welch won.

She broke the world record three years in a row at the NYC Marathon.  Grete won the London Marathon twice (1983 and 1986) as well.  She had just as much success at the smaller road races she participated in.

Waitz also won a silver medal at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.
