Physician, Heel Thyself

Who’s In The Running?

Men have been racing in 8cm stilettos in a high heeled running festival in China. The two week long event in Nanning, Guangxi province, features races for men, women and couples. Male racers must wear heels at least 8cm high while women have to wear 10cm stilettos.

FOOTNOTE: Sole mates.

And how appropriate to have a FOOTnote to a post about heels & running.

Now, that's I call serious 'footwork, or 'footwok'. Or maybe someone put their foot in it and wore stilettoes a centimetre less than required? That was a fun story, david. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Foot loose is what they will be feeling at the end of this race

You might say the running is 'point to point!'
What a load of heels to make them run like that! They must be running on the balls of their feet.

My word verification is: SIATICR
Almost right I had sciatica yesterday!

Now, if they were expected to wear stilettos in the running of the bulls...

Ha! I'd look like a 6 foot stork running in stilettoes! I am running a 10K this weekend but you can bet I'll be in my Saucony's!
