Teri Hatcher‘s marathon run was meant to inspire and to put her money where her mouth is. On Sunday afternoon, after weeks of training and healthy eating, Hatcher was proud to announce that at the age of 49, she was able to run the New York City Marathon.

The Desperate Housewives star joined 50,000 runners, including few famous faces like 30 Rock star, Katrina Bowden and MasterChef‘s Joe Bastianich to cross the finish line.

Tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, former NFL running back, Tiki Barber, Today co-host Erica Hill and former The Bachelor star Andy Baldwin also participated in the 44th running of the New York City Marathon.

Hatcher revealed in a post, she shared on Parade‘s website that at her age, she never imagined that she would ever run a marathon, but when Sean Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization asked, she said yes. But she had to do it, through a lot of pain.

The days leading to the marathon, Hatcher found out that she had painful ulcers, a serious sinus infection, which called for antibiotics. She had an allergic reaction to the medication, which meant – hives all over and to top it all, the chronic blister on her right foot started hurting again.

But she fought and did it:

So I’m putting my money where my mouth is (and raising money for the deserving J/P Haitian Relief Organization.) I’m doing something I’m not sure I’m capable of—running this weekend’s New York City Marathon. The wind is set to be intense, the weather cold, and my body feels like it has chosen the last 10 days to revolt. But I’m determined to model the behavior I’ve taught: To be my personal best, reach beyond my imagined limits and not be discouraged by a result less than I’ve expected. There’s a part, at the heart of everyone, that wants to be the best at whatever we choose to do, but I doubt our intentions are to beat others. If the focus is to win, it isn’t necessarily also to make the other person lose. There can only be on winner, but that shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the journey of trying. It you don’t win, it doesn’t discount all your efforts. Don’t let it!

Teri Hatcher crossed the finish line in the 44th running of the New York City Marathon in 5:06:42.
