Running in heels!

WOO HOO!  This Saturday I will be running down Water Street in Uptown Saint John in my favorite black & bamboo wedges.  No, I won’t be fleeing for my life, I will be dashing 100 yards for charity and – no doubt – a lot of laughs.  I am participating in the Coverdale Clothes Closet STILETTO STAMPEDE!


The event kicks off at 9am with registration, so if YOU are UP for the challenge, you should show up about then (you can also register online until the end of the week at  All heels must be at least 2 inches tall and men needing to find heels in their size can contact the Stampede organisers through the website. 

At 10:15am there will be a celebrity race for our local gems (think Imelda Gilman, Dan Coulton, Margaret Ann Blaney, Rachel Cave, police officers, etc.) to duke it out in heels for a fabulous trophy.  Following the celeb race, starting at 11:15am, will be the main event:  female & male runners careening down the street for a chance at $1000.00 in cash and prizes!  This, of course, will be when I make a fool of myself.

Immediately after the second race is finished… it is time to party!  An awards ceremony and BBQ (provided by Boilerworks) will be held on the Market Square Boardwalk as a thank you to all participants, donors and spectators.  The prizes for fastest male and female will be awarded, as well as the celebrity trophy and prize for top fundraiser.

It should be a wonderful time and I encourage everyone to come out and join in the fun.  Wish me luck (not break a leg…  anything but that)! 😉
