Meet the woman who has gained almost 50,000 social media followers by creating penis-shaped routes whilst out – JOGGING.
Claire Pisano, also known as ‘Dick_Run_Claire’ on Instagram, has daily runs almost exclusively shaped like a penis.
The 33-year-old mum has become an Instagram sensation by mapping out penises with her running app and sharing them online.
Claire, from New Jersey, USA, took up running as a hobby aged 28 and mapped out her first ‘dick run’ by accident in November 2015.
It happened when she went out for a jog whilst visiting a relative in Kansas, in November 2015, and went took a wrong turn.
She posted her creation online and the Instagram page Dick_Run_Claire was born.
Now Claire has 48,000 followers on Instagram through sharing her penis runs of all shapes and sizes – and has kick started a rude running trend.
Searching for #dickrun on Instagram reveals how thousands of people are getting in on the act to map out a willy on their workout.
Claire, a corporate sector worker, said: ” I encourage anyone and everyone to try a dickrun or two.
“Someone once sent me their map of a dickswim, that was pretty impressive actually. I can’t swim in a straight line, let alone draw something.
“The first dick run was a total accident at first. My brother had moved and I was visiting him. I went for a run and took a wrong turn.
“When I got back, I realised what I had accidentally drawn. From what I hear, most dickrunners start out this way. Obviously my friends thought it was funny so I kept it up.”
Claire has taken part in two marathons, a dozen half marathons since taking up running and is already training for her third marathon in autumn this year.
If training for a marathon isn’t hard enough, Claire’s running routine includes the added challenge of trying to map out a penis.
It has seen her draw penises small and large on the streets across America.
Three-and-a-half years after #dickrun was born, Claire says it can be tricky to make each drawing different from the one before.
She said: “I got into running because it was ‘me time.- although I always love running with friends.There’s nothing like a run to clear your mind and help you reset.
“The dickruns are funny but there are some super talented people doing #stravaart – really impressive and detailed drawings.
“It depends on the setting. I like the challenge in more rural areas, because you don’t have a lot of roads to work with, so I love finding a random ‘road dick’.
“Sometimes they’re super obvious, and I am pretty sure there’s a league of town planners and transportation engineers who are all in on some inside joke making road dicks in their towns.”
Whilst some dickruns come naturally, Claire says he spends hours online mapping out new runs.
Claire said:: “I do spend an inordinate amount of time mapping out dickruns.
“I travel for work and for fun, so I map them out anywhere I travel, I have so many mapped that I haven’t run yet.”
