As a runner, you’ve probably always heard that you shouldn’t wear high heels because it’s bad for your back, your knees or your ankles and while I never wear heels I have always been a big fan of them. The ladies in the following video [from My Boston Marathon 2010 via With Leather] take it to a whole new level, they are racing in heels.
Gesundheit! Also see basketball in heels.
If you haven’t already read Amy’s most recent marathon training incident over at Lawson’s Do Dallas then I encourage you to do so. Not only is her story-telling funny as always, but this particular entry is also illustrated by the author.
Jes (Self Motivation) has a unique way of applauding those who finished Chicago, while Jess (21 Days) has a link to an ebay auction where you can buy a medal in case you didn’t get to finish. Thanks Jes(s)!
Speaking of Chicago, Mark the Running Blogfather posted a great article over at Complete Running calling out the organizers and the Chicago press for their spin after the race.
This last link isn’t really running related but it really made me laugh and I found it at a runner’s blog so I’m including it here. Thanks to Taryn for the Poison Control post.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll be back early on Monday morning with a Blog Action Day post and I’ll have a full race report from the Denver Half Marathon sometime after.
