This is something you don’t see every day.
A reporter for the Detroit Lions’ website, Tori Petry, ran the 40 at the combine in heels in a blistering 5.98 seconds.
If you don’t think that’s fast, try running the 40 in heels.
Here’s some perspective. Her time – again, in heels – would have nearly beaten nine NFL hopefuls and was faster than that of Houston Cougars offensive lineman Isiah Thompson, who clocked in at 6.06 seconds in 2011. And, she thinks she could have done better.
And, she beat Rich Eisen, who runs the 40 in a suit every year for a great cause — he raises money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. He did a 6.02 this year (and who cares what his time is; it’s the cause that counts).
