Fit at Five: Ski Boot and Stiletto Challenge
We have all seen the crazy things that can happen all in the name of fashion. On this Fit at Five we learn that it's when fashion and fitness collide that the real wild stuff goes down. That will be the case at the 2nd annual Ski Boot and Stiletto Challenge held October 20 in the parking lot of DiMillo's.
What could be so challenging about ski boots and stilettos? Try sprinting 100 yards in them. Defending Stiletto Challenge Champion Lisa Nappi tells us that if you can walk comfortably in heels than you can run in them. She did clue us in on some helpful, and fashionable stiletto running tips. Wedges are not allowed in the race, but Lisa said the chunkier the heel the better. Lisa also said that wearing a shoe with a strap to hold your foot in is key.
As for the men they added the ski boot portion of the race this year. Awkward to walk in. Hilarious to watch someone doing a 100 yard sprint in. There is also a relay for a mixture of stilettos, and ski boots.
We have provided links to sign up for the race. You can even walk up the day of the race to register. It should be a fun event even for spectators, and the money raised will be going to charity. That means fashion + fitness = WINNING!
