Running for Chickens?

Now I don’t know about you, but going out running for 13.1 miles is not my idea of a fun way to spend a Sunday morning. However, 13 miles is a piece of vegan cake for some people, especially when running to educate others. PETA’s very own Nicole and Lindsay sweated it up yesterday in a half marathon in Louisville, Kentucky (headquarters of none other than KFC) to spread the message of KFC’s cruelty.

Donning yellow sports bras and shorts, Lindsay and Nicole caused quite a stir for the 2 hours and 21 minutes they ran with messages such as “Boycott KFC” and “KFC Tortures Chicks” written on themselves. Check it out:

They wanted to spread the message that no one should support a company that supports cruelty to animals. Click here to learn more about KFC, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out our “Super Chick Sisters” game.

Yay for Lindsay and Nicole! You girls rock!

PS – I spent the last few days at a conference with Pulin in Austin, and he would just not stop talking about Lindsay and Nicole and how cute they must look in their “tiny yellow outfits” (his words). I prefer Zach Braff sporting tiny yellow scrubs myself (jk), but to each his/her own.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
