Run in heels!

Heels

♪These heels weren’t made for running…♫ Would you be caught in the Jurassic age sprinting in (a) platforms (east & west) or (b) stilettos (north & south)? Gotta ♥love♥ my glitz & glam collection of shiny spikes

That’s exactly what Bryce Dallas Howard did in Jurassic World ~ which hit box office record-high revenues in its debut weekend ~ as her character, Claire, ran amidst dinosaurs.

This bombshell daughter of Happy Days actor and Oscar-winning director Ron Howard shows us that not only can she rock out nude pumps (one of my recent footwear options for my dissertation defense), she can race in them as well! Here’s more Heel Hype

  • On The Late Late Show, the Howard junior’s cast mate, Chris Pratt, mocked her in his own run-in-heels rendition
  • On Inside Edition, one of the hosts did a series of ankle-strengthening exercises to boost her own potential stiletto-sprinting training:

Lunges are essential.

Calf raises also help.

While skinny heels aren’t particularly my first choice to login miles (obviously, those and platforms aren’t the most practical), some of us runners and good-cause advocates may have raced in them to raise funds for awareness and research.

[Sidestep note: I’m probably one of the only people into pop culture who still hasn’t seen it yet could’ve with my Jurassic fan Bestie ~ but am predisposed with my research now]

Dino Run = Dyno-mite!!!
