Running in Heels
Now I'm sure we've all found ourselves in situations that require us to hurry quickly in a pair of heels before, maybe we've even had to actually run. But here is something I've never seen before...
Yes, what you are seeing is real. A High Heel-a-Thon in New York. Kelly Ripa is the host of this event and a participant. It is a race in high heels. Contestants had to wear a minimum 3 inch heel. Now that is impressive.
Kelly Ripa says: "Marathon Schmarathon! Completing 26.2 miles in running shoes is nothing (*not sure I agree with her on that point)-- try spending a full day running errands, taking the kids to school and shopping, all in 4 inch heels," Ripa declared. "That's what I call a marathon! So our High Heel-a-thon is a way of showcasing a unique unsung talent for which most women are never recognized."Last year: The winner won $25,000 dollars. But more importantly the event was sponsored by Dr. Scholls and all the proceeds went to The March of Dimes charity. You can still register for the 2010 race which is in September. This year it's sponsored by Zappos and will benefit The Heart Truth campaign. Plus the winner gets a car! What a great cause and a fun girly way to show your strength and support.
