I've been watching the Olympics this weekend, amazed by the grace of these athletes and thinking about the sacrifices they've all made to be the best they can be. And somehow this this reminded me of an event I heard about a few months ago: the annual Stiletto Run.
Location: P.C. Hooft Street in Amsterdam
Prize: 10,000 Euro ($15K USD)
Requirements: 3 1/2" heels
The event has been catching on worldwide: Moscow, Berlin, Haarlem, and beyond.
In Amsterdam this past March, the winner was Tamara Ruben, 25. When asked how she would spend the money, she replied, "Anything but high heels."
Would I run this race? Of course!
I'm curious who else would and what shoes they'd wear to dash for the cash.
