A former dancer ran the marathon in shoes with high heels for 7 hours, 28 minutes and got into the Guinness Book of records. About it reports UPI.
“Well, the world I did it. Itself in shock, but it really happened” — wrote in Instagram Irene Sewell (Sewell Irene) from the American city of Chattanooga, Tennessee. She overcame the 42-kilometer distance in heels height of 7.6 cm for two minutes faster than the previous holder of this record.
On the recommendation of a podiatrist (physician specializing in diseases of the foot and lower leg) Sewell trained in sports shoes and sometimes we jog in heels.
A marathon woman seized six pairs of shoes of different sizes: from 7.5 (corresponds to the Russian size 37) to 9 (38.5 C). In addition, it is stocked with plasters, insoles and compression bandages to the lower leg.
