Not such a good idea: Paris Hilton regrets devouring huge burger right before Japan charity run

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Running for relief: Paris and Nickey arrived at 11am to take part in the 'Tokidoki Youth Relief/Red Cross Run'


Most athletes would stay away from eating large meals right before a race, and Paris Hilton soon regretted snacking on a burger ahead of her charity run.

The heiress munched away on a ‘Fatburger’ hamburger before taking part in a two mile charity run to raise money for earthquake and tsunami-hit Japan.

Perhaps the 30-year-old thought the extra carbohydrates would fuel her during the race, but instead she appeared to be struggling through her first mile.


'Best burger ever': Paris says Fatburger burgers are her favourite and couldn't resist the treat ahead of her run, but later admitted she wished she had waited until after the race to eat it


Paris was joined by her sister Nicky and the girls arrived in Santa Monica at 11am to take part in the ‘Tokidoki Youth Relief/Red Cross Run’.

The Simple Life star still managed to crack a smile during the jog though, but afterwards onlookers saw her quickly grab a bottle of water and dash off to her car to sit down.

She then admitted to one of the cameramen that it wasn’t the best idea and wished she’d waited until after the race to eat the burger.

But Paris, who was dressed in black jogging bottoms and a white charity T-shirt animated with Japanese characters, did insist that ‘Fatburger’ make ‘the best burgers ever’.

So far 90,000 of the charity T-shirts have been sold to raise money for Japan’s victims.

Black Eyed Peas songstress Fergie also ran the race and looked athletic in three-quarter length jogging leggings and a matching black top animated with the Japanese characters.

The Boom Boom Pow singer was pounding the pavement alongside her husband Josh Duhamel.

The Transformers star organised the event after being affected by the devastation caused by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake on March 11.

Fergie and her band members had filmed the video for their latest single Just Can’t Get Enough in Tokyo just a week before the earthquake hit.

Duhamel wrote on his Twitter page after the event, posting: ‘We did it! 4,000+ people pack the beach!

‘The youth of LA mobilized & should be proud. All of u that donated should be proud. Much love. JD.’

Paris also later tweeted: ‘Such a great day today. I love helping make a difference’ and ‘Felt so amazing to support Japan today and run.’

She then wrote on Fergie’s Twitter page, writing: ‘Happy Birthday @TheFergie! Love you so much! So proud of all that you have achieved, you are amazing! Love Paris xox…’

Fergie had celebrated her 36th birthday in Las Vegas on Friday night at the Bellagio Resort and Casino.

The charity run has raised over $13,000 (£81,000) so far.

Before the run, Paris and Nicky also quickly popped into Santa Monica's Fred Segal store to do a spot of shopping ahead of their charity effort.
