On the Heels of the Olympics: The Stiletto Run

On your mark. Get set. Ouch! I can't even walk in stilettos, much less run in a competition with stilettos on. These gluttons for punishment (all 265 of them in Australia) took part in an 80-meter dash in Sydney wearing three-inch heels. The winner, a professional hurdler, took the $5,000 (Australian dollars) prize and a gold pair of stilettos. (She's just going to have to put all that cash toward a visit to the podiatrist.)

I was a hurdler in high school. Sprinting in stilettos actually isn't that difficult, because you have to run on the balls of your feet. The heels should never touch the ground. But the pinched toes and poor cushioning are a whole different story. :p

Participation in a stiletto race should be required for any man or woman seeking election to any political office. ;)

Finally, a race that I have a good chance of winning in! I hope this sport makes its way to the US.
