Kelly Bensimon competed in the 2012 NYC Half Marathon.

Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon and Kate Gosselin now have more than being a reality star in common – they’re both marathon runners!

Bensimon participated in the New York City half marathon on Sunday (March 18).

Of her race, Kelly said, “Running up Seventh Avenue like that … oh my God, it was unbelievable. I was videoing people, taking my pictures it was so exciting. Such a cool thing to be a part of. I raised almost ten thousand dollars for Generosity Water. When I like oh my God, can I make it, I thought, I just raised ten thousand dollars for these girls who are walking with 40 pounds of water on their heads I think I can run a little more.”

Kelly finished the 13.1-mile race in 2:13:51! Bravo!
