Pamela Anderson - Pamela Anderson Yet To Start Training For New York City Marathon

Actress Pamela Anderson is facing a race against time to train for November's (13) New York City Marathon after confessing she's yet to really tackle "the running thing".

The former Baywatch beauty announced her intention to raise money for charity by taking part in the 26.2 mile (42.16 kilometre) challenge in late August (13), but she only recently got around to shopping for running sneakers with her trainer and she's yet to actually lace them up to pound the pavement.

She confesses to the New York Daily News, "I really haven't attacked the running thing. I've never been a runner. I've never even run across the street hardly before."

Instead, Anderson has been building up her stamina by jumping on elliptical and Stairmaster machines and lifting small weights at home.

However, the model/actress, who has previously competed on reality Tv show Dancing With the Stars and Britain's Dancing on Ice, is determined to succeed and prove her critics wrong on 3 November (13).

She says, "People think I'm crazy... I like to do things that people think maybe I can't do, and this is definitely one of those things. You know, somehow I learned to dance, learned to skate, and all these things that people thought I couldn't do. Now, I'm running a marathon."

Anderson will join five Haitian marathon runners as part of J/P Haitian Relief Organization's The Long Run for Haiti campaign and her efforts will help to boost donations to Sean Penn's charity, which was set up in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake.
