Claire Wyckoff has found the ultimate motivation for going on her weekly runs: she uses Nike+ (and a bit of pre-running map research) to plot pictures of dicks on her runs!
Or in her own words: “I’m Claire. I use Nike+ to draw pictures when I run. mainly dicks.”

The San Francisco native has created a highly popular Tumblr (Running Drawing),  Instagram (@clairewyck) and twitter (@clairewyckoff) account to document all her ‘dicking around’

The hobbyist runner explained how she got into running her routes in the shape of dicks:

“I mean, it certainly happened by chance—I ran something that looked like a dog so I just ran a dog. And it’s been serendipitous for me. I can’t tell you how delightful the response has been. I hope people run with it, and this changes how people use Nike+. That’s where this gets really cool to me. People hacking brands. Awesome.”

For Claire it has brought the fun back into her fitness habbits:

“I think fitness people tend to seem really serious. You think about serious yogis and their namastes, or CrossFitters and their incessant CrossFitting, and I think it generally seems like a world that’s more intense and serious than it is fun. So yeah, I think it’s a world that could use a little more quirkiness or chicken costumes. That’s why I like the Hash House Harriers. They drink and sing songs while they run. Now THAT is how you do it. And fro me drawing dicks is just really loads of fun”

this is for the fans. You guys are like jockstraps mostly white and really supportive

Sometimes Wyckoff gets hampered in her attempts to run dicks in record times:

“Last week, SF foot traffic made our penis run hard. But then I realized… we didn’t TELL people we were saving the world with a #dickrun!? That’s like Superman wearing Umbros. Our bad. So we came up with these dick t-shirts. At least now you’ll know!”

‘Digging’ other shapes

To be fair, some of Wykoff’s Nike+ drawings are not dicks — she recently ran an Atari Space Invaders character, an extended middle finger and Slimer from Ghotsbusters. Also she ran an Imperial AT-AT Walker from Star Wars. Nothing to do with dicks except that “I’ll call you a penis if you aren’t excited for the new Star Wars movie”.

This run is for Ashleigh Blumer Kohlitz. It’s called “fuck cancer”. Thanks for giving me an excuse to run a middle finger

However by far her most popular running routes all result in nicely plotted dicks. Dicks of all sizes. Fat dicks, skinny dicks. Dicks who climb on rocks. And even Gandalf’s dick.

Decided to change it up and run an airplane. Just kidding it’s an upside down dick!

If you fancy to do a dick run for yourself post your pictures on social media and use the hashtags #dickrun #chicksrundicks or #rundicks
You might even give her a little hand….or handjob as she ran the other day as a thank you and Merry Christmas to her fans:

You guys have been rad. That’s why I ran you a handjob. Don’t say I never cared. Merry whatever you celebrate! Love, Claire

Vagina requests

Wyckoff says she has received a lot of requests for other run drawings. By far the most popular request has been to run draw some pussy and vaginas. The problem with a vagina is the elaborate and curvy shape of it. “A lot of what I can run draw is determined by what can be run in a city with a grid system. People keep saying vagina. Finding a vagina to run in the streets is gonna take some time.” But not as long as she expected cause she recently ran this vagina:

It’s a pussy run

Next Challenge: Jimmy Fallon aka Jimmy Phallus

In one of her latest creative rundrawing outbursts Wyckoff has come up with the plan to get Jimmy Fallon to run a phallus symbol. For this Jimmy Phallus run she is trying to get Fallon to notive her dick runs:

“Guys! Help! I need @jimmyfallon to run a Jimmy Phallus with me! Can you help me get his attention? Tag him in this photo and tweet at him @jimmyfallon with the #JimmyPhallus hashtag! #rundraw #runningdrawing #nikeplus #chicksrundicks #dickrun #jimmyrunsajimmy”

 

Guys! Help! I need @jimmyfallon to run a Jimmy Phallus with me!

Future Dick Races?!

Over at Uproxx, Stacey Ritzen is pretty excited about what Wykoff’s been up to, and thinks it could have beautiful ramifications for future road race course designs. She writes,

“The possibilities are endless. Dick 5Ks? Cock and Balls Half Marathons? PENIS-SHAPED MEDALS? As both a runner and purveyor of fine dick humor, my head is absolutely spinning with the possibilities.

Even injuries don’t set her back….

After a small knee injury, I’m back. This dick has a beautiful head and curves gently to the left

Neither a day of heavy drinking on labor day….

Happy Labor Day! Hope you drink so much you can’t get it up! Here’s a flaccid penis. #laborday #beerdick
