5 Celebrity Hairstyles From The NYC Marathon

5 Celebrity Hairstyles From The NYC MarathonThe weather in New York City yesterday was absolutely perfect for the NYC Marathon. This year, 43,000 people participated in this amazing feet of endurance and I admire them all. Within those 43,000, some very well known celebrities let their “hair down” and got sweaty.

Not a celebrity (maybe by the time this post is up that will change) in hollywood circles, but in world news, Chilean miner Edison Pena also participated in the NYC Marathon. He has shared with various news reporters and publications that he does have a special connection to the voice of the late Elvis Presley. While he was trapped underground for 69 days, he listened to the music of Elvis Presley. When Priscilla Presley learned about this, she personally invited him and his wife to visit Graceland.

So, how does a television or movie star deal with sweaty tresses when running for 4-6 hours straight? I decided to focus in on the five celebrities that I was most curious about; Bobby Flay, Robin Quivers, Anthony Edwards, and Veronica Webb.

Anthony Edwards didn’t have much hair to worry about and was seen running with his almost bald head with a smile. On the other end of the hair spectrum, Bobby Flay and his full head of red hair kept him hot on the marathon trail. However, he is used to taking the heat in the kitchen. When looking at the women, Robin Quivers, Veronica Webb and Meredith Vieira wore their long tresses back and tight with the help of a ponytail. I also noticed that both Veronica and Meredith wore a headband, most likely to absorb the glistening of their foreheads.

Did you have a favorite celebrity, or even a non-celebrity, running in the NYC Marathon this year? Did the way they handled their sweat surprise you?

    I don’t think I’ve ever watched it.

    My mother started doing marathons when she turned 60.

    There were runners in the marathon raising money for Chai Lifeline – those would be my favorites.
