The Word: Pamela Anderson tweets pic of post-marathon pain
Some marathoners can bounce back from a 26.2-miler like it was a walk in the park. Pamela Anderson does not appear to be one of them.
After her outing in Sunday’s ING New York City Marathon, Pamela tweeted the above pic of herself covered in ice packs in bed. It’s captioned, simply, “Ouch!”
I’m sure Pamela thinks the pain was worth it though: The “Baywatch” star, who ran the marathon with her brother Gerry, raised nearly $76,000 for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
According to the marathon results page, Anderson finished the marathon in 5:41:03 — not bad for a 46-year-old lady who’s used to running down beaches in slow motion. Several famous marathoners beat her, though: Fellow beautiful person Christy Turlington bested her by nearly an hour with a time of 4:35:32, while “ER” and “Top Gun” star Anthony Edwards, visibly energized on the course by the cries of “Goose!” that I shouted at him, crossed the finish line in 4:45:26.
Of course, the winner, Kenya’s Geoffrey Mutai, could have finished the course twice before a single one of these celebs crossed the finish line. So Christy shouldn’t get a big head.
