MALMO, Sweden -- When I learned Glamour magazine was sponsoring a race of young Swedish models running in stiletto heels, I didn't picture this: a runner with a pirate cap, an eye patch, red eyebrows drawn with a magic marker and, gulp, a beard.
"Trust me, this is the first time I've ever run in heels," contestant Erik Ponnert said. "My friends signed me up. It's part of my bachelor party."
Yeah, sure. Whatever you say, Erik. I believe you.
