French Woman Breaks High Heel Marathon Record

 

French women are often considered to be the pinnacle of fashion, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of them set the world record for running a marathon in high heels on Sunday.

According to The Local, 34-year-old mother of two Christelle Doyhambehere finished the Paris Marathon with a time of 6:04:07. She beat the previous record–set by American Irene Sewell in 2017–by more than an hour.

Doyhambehere said she got the idea last year when her partner saw her running to the car in heels and joked, “Why don’t you run the marathon in those shoes?” She was surprised by her time saying, “I hoped to beat the record, but not by that much!” Her record is pending approval by Guinness World Records.
