    Claire Wyckoff (pretty please be pronounced wackoff) uses the Nike+ run-tracking app to run in penis shapes, which she then posts to her Tumblr 'Running Drawing'. She doesn't JUST do penises though, just a LOT of penises (she's also done a unicorn, middle finger, Slimer from G... / Continue →

    These are PaleoBarefoot's $265 PRONATIV chainmaille running shoes. They're supposed to feel like running barefoot (except you can allegedly walk on LEGO blocks without any pain). It's not the first time I've posted PaleoBarefoot's chainmaille shoes before (previous post here)... / Continue →

    This is a video of the bipedal Raptor robot, a two legged predator capable of speeds up to 46km/h (~28.6MPH). For reference, Hussain Bolt tops out at 27.44MPH (~44km/h). That means this little f***er could easily catch up to my out of shape ass and attempt murder. Only ATTEM... / Continue →

    This is a video of Duncan the boxer running on the beach. Duncan was born with severely deformed back legs, so his adoptive family had them amputated. And now he has learned to run with just his front two legs. Cool, but I'd still want some back wheels if I was him. "Vroom ... / Continue →

    This is a video of stuntman/freerunner Damien Walters performing what is allegedly the first human loopty loop on foot. Is it actually the first? No clue. Was it sponsored by Pepsi MAX to encourage everyone to #LiveForNow? Yes, whatever the hell that means. "You know, carp... / Continue →

    Remember Cheetah, DARPA's 28-MPH robot that was confined to running tethered on a treadmill? Well now they've ditched the tether and created WildCat, a 16MPH (read: faster than you) running robot that can run free and as long as its on-board motor will allow. Scared yet? You... / Continue →

    This is the robot designed by the humanity hating folks over at EPFL's Biorobotics Laboratory. It was built to run like a cat, but just a little one, unlike DARPA's Cheetah inspired death machine. *cue Meow Mix commercial* The purpose of the platform is to encourage research... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy cosplaying as the QWOP runner (links to game) at Anime North 2013. I'm pretty sure it's the same guy who cosplayed as the QWOP runner at Anime North 2012, but with AN IMPROVED ROUTINE. That's serious commitment to the character. He took a year, pract... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple zombies impressively parkouring around a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Obviously, if real zombies turn out to be this nimble, everyone's getting their brains eaten. Except me. I'm throwing myself into a volcano like that little troll at the end of L... / Continue →

    This is a video from National Geographic of cheetahs running in super slow motion. Cheetahs, as I'm sure you're aware, are the fastest land animal and can reach speeds up to 112 - 120 km/h (~70-75MPH). Plus accelerate from 0 - 100km/h (~62MPH) in less than three seconds. Tha... / Continue →

    DARPA's new and improved cheetah robot is officially faster than even the fastest human, making running for your life futile unless you just want to die hot and sweaty. The world record for the 100 meter dash was set in 2009 by sprinter Usain Bolt, who averaged 23.35 mph dur... / Continue →

    This is a video of an American Staffordshire Terrier named Tret The Superdog who was trained in the art of parkour by his caretaker in the Ukraine. He is really good. Way better than I could ever do and I actually have fingers for gripping. At least I think that's what they'... / Continue →

    Remember Evolta, the miniscule robotic mascot for Panasonic's line of Evolta batteries? Of course you do, you have a memory like an elephant. Body too. "What was that?!" Sorry I must've farted. Well now Evolta is going to attempt an Ironman triathlon in Hawaii early next m... / Continue →

    This is Midnite (not to be confused with midnight, which is when your carriage turns back into a pumpkin). Midnite is a little horsey who was born without part of a back leg. His original owner, without the decency to contact somebody who might be able to help or putting a bu... / Continue →

    There are creepy pictures, and then there's the picture above. Introducing 'Athlete', the running, jumping robot. Which -- when was the last time you went for a jog again? Because now might be a good time to dust off the Umbros and cross-trainers and hit the sidewalk. Me? ... / Continue →
