It's obviously a stunt / gimmick, like running as part of a caterpillar. Why?It does look like she's putting a bit more thought into it.
Seems like her shoes are being made for the event, 5" heels with 1/4" across. She says she is going to follow a traditional 16 week marathon training plan, has a personal trainer and is learning to mid / forefoot strike.
Whatever, running a marathon forefoot striking is tough in trainers, let alone heels. Does she grasp how fatigued she'll get.
Oh and she is saying sub 5 hrs now.
