Monty Python legend Michael Palin Runs in Mizuno Footwear
by Harper Cornell on March 30, 2011
You may know Michael Palin as the Leader of the Knights who say "NI" from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but what you may not know about him is that he is also a runner. Each month Runner's World Magazine has a special feature, "I'm a Runner", in which a celebrity, professional athlete, politician, or other famous person shares how running is incorporated into their life. This reader favorite section is on the last page of each issue.
For the April issue of Runner's World, actor Michael Palin, famous for all the Monty Python films and Flying Circus series, talks about his love of running. He talks about how he used running to get in shape for a role in Life of Brian, and was hooked for life on the sport, as well as how he brainstorms script ideas while out for a run. Palin is also holding up his Mizuno Wave Alchemy 9's in the photo.
