Pamela Anderson finished the grueling New York City marathon on Sunday with her brother, Gerry. The pair raised $75,864 for Sean Penn’s charity, the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.

The 46-year-old actress told ESPN that she considered running the marathon in her iconic red “Baywatch” swimsuit.

“For a second I did entertain the thought,” Anderson admitted. “I had friends ask me to [wear it]. They think it would be really funny. The bad thing was, I did think twice about it!”

The former Playboy Playmate was ecstatic after crossing the finish line. She tweeted a picture of her and Gerry with the message: “So proud of my brother Gerry. Thank G. For running next to me today – love you lots.”

“I never worked out in the ‘Baywatch’ days,” Anderson confessed. “Now it feels so good, I’m like, ‘Why wasn’t I doing this for the last 20 years of my life?’ But everything happens for a reason and I’m actually glad that, at this time and this age, I’m exercising. I’m not sure what else would have gotten me to exercise.”

She announced her plan to run the 26-mile race in September after being approached by Penn, a close friend, to help raise $300,000 for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. The charity hopes to save lives and bring sustainable programs to Haiti as it continues to recover from the devastating 2010 earthquake.

So far, $289, 742 has been raised on Crowdrise.
