And here I was hoping this would be about the failure to wear a sports bra

It appears to be one of these:
Over the past five years, stiletto runs, also known as hoge hakken races (high heel races), have become one of the most popular charity events in the Netherlands, pitting ladies against each other for the chance to win prizes and support various women's health and rights issues. The races can be anywhere from 45m to 200m in length, usually through a blocked-off road in the middle of a city.

Competitions are usually only open to women, who must race in heels that are at least 7cm high and no more than 1.5cm wide at the base. Of course, participants must also absolve the organisers of any liability over twisted ankles or other injuries.


It seems like a great way to break an ankle.

Rushing back to the kitchen, of course.

And she was beat by the girl in jeans - seriously if someone in jeans is kicking your ass in a race, you need to re-evaluate your race strategy...

I, too, came here for a slow-motion panoply of mammary tissue, set to the "Chariots of Fire" theme, but instead I simply find someone who thought lunging for the finish line was a good idea.
