Yikes!

I read this article (with video) about a “high heel race” and I don’t understand how these women can sprint in high heels.  I can barely walk in them.  I’m sure it gets easier with practice, but still, sprinting?

I remembered reading that Olympic athlete Jackie Joyner Kersee said she grew up running in high heels.  I was looking for a link about that, and I found all these other videos of high heel races in European cities.  All sponsored by Glamour.  Just … odd.

Then I found this awesome video of the D.C. Annual High Heel Race.  There’s something about drag queens that makes me feel incredibly freaking happy to be a woman.  I wish I had a tenth the sassiness of a drag queen.  They should run workshops.
