Special Shoes (Read 401 times)

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

      WTF?

      "Don't feel like running today...suck it up and run ...you're an athlete." (John Stanton, founder & owner of The Running Room)

       

      Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)

        WTF?

        I do not understand this, at all.

         

        I mean, the thigh gap on the girl was nice and all, but you don't need special shoes for that.

        "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

        Needs more cowbell!

          Who needs special shoes to walk like a zombie?

          I shoot pretty things! ~

          '14 Goals:

          • 6 duathlons (1 Olympic distance)

          • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

            The designer's statement:

             

            'humans are playing God by physically and metaphorically perfecting themselves. beauty is currently at an all time climax,
            allowing this project to explore what lies beyond perfection. scary beautiful challenges current beauty ideals by inflicting
            an unexpected new beauty standard.'

            Notice her use of the word "inflict".  The shoes are the rest of her statement.
