It’s somewhat understandable why people would want to run a marathon. You’re pushing your body to the limit for a good reason, and adopting a training schedule that can somewhat change your life. What’s less understandable is why someone (like this guy) would want to add degrees of difficulty and pain to that undertaking by putting another obstacle in the way.

Juris Sileniekis did just this by running a half marathon while wearing dress shoes (He was sponsored by Wolf and Shepherd) to show how comfortable they are. They must have been pretty comfy, because the dude won the race. 

You know the company’s gotta be loving this. His feet may not be, but the company sure is.

Hat Tip – [SI]
