Running style. Wtf?

Ha ha, I ran into him going to the tan once. So I can confirm he runs.

I think he may have been showing off for the cameras here - sadly his efforts at pace have resulted in an extremely unappealing and awkward form :lol:

who wouldn't run differently for the cameras 😉 Perhaps looking straight strong and tall didn't look so good in real life as in your head.

Looks like he is running in clown shoes.

Maybe he needs to shorten his stride. 

But yeah, at least he is out there.

Haha terrible but who cares? With feet that point out like his it was never going to be pretty. 

How about just focus on the fact he’s doing something?

I will admit I have seen him at the maribyrnong parkrun.  He can actually run, but not in that video.  WTF is he thinking.

I've seen him running in real life too, and while it is quite an awkward style, it is nothing as bad as that tweet. I watched it several times yesterday and had a good laugh, where it was compared to this

Hope he does IM if he becomes PM.   Would be good to have a PM do the race.

I hope he would be doing his job - not sure you can train for IM while being PM...

Trump plays a lot of golf each week. 

Im sure bill could do a triathlon.  Mind you it would give fodder to tony to challenge him.

He stopped to pat the dogs. Mustn’t be that bad a bloke.

Strategically placed so he could have a breather.

So he likes dogs & he’s smart enough to strategically plan a rest stop. 

Sounds like a good leader

i know john howard is not the best example as he was not only punted from govt by the Australian people but punted from his seat but he found time to walk everyday, im sure shorten could finish an ironman on 7 hours training a week, its not like he needs to go sub 13, just 17.

Yeah, fast chance of that!  Worst case scenario is they'd be gifted the spot.

Towards the end of a long run yesterday I had a bad feeling I was doing the Bill Shorten shuffle. Had to tell myself it was more like the terminator chasing the car in T2 to make me feel a bit better.

'Tom Cruise running' is a thing. He seems to choose his style between 'Hunch back running from Notre Dame flames' and 'Carl Lewis scissor hands' depending on if he's being chased or is the chaser.

'Legend' at 1:55 demonstrates Hunchback style as does 'Vanilla Sky' at 6:40. The classic scissor hands can be seen at 4:40 in 'The Firm'. I've also spotted a 3rd category, 'headless chicken' in 'The Firm 3:55 - which is always a good way to fill in some suspenseful minutes getting Tom from A to B.

He's run styles are considered quite famous, and he's considered to have the greatest movie running styles.  In general, someone running fast on camera (ordinary people) doesn't actually look all that fast.  So they have to extra over exaggerate the motions so it looks better.  General running just doesn't translate as well on camera.  It's like rain.  Normal everyday rain on camera doesn't really show up much.  So if you want it to look like it's raining then they have to create an absolute downpour, and of it needs to look like a downpour they need to create a hurricane.

Anybody want to guess why he never passed the army's PT test during his short career as an Army Reserve officer cadet?
