Bull Running Event Draws Thousands Of Runners And Spectators

Posted: Updated:

A Spaniard tradition comes to Arizona each year in the form of bull racing. Thrill seekers only pay $30 to participate while spectators pay $12.

One participant, Wade Rochal, calls it exhilarating, but says the 12 bulls aren't the real problem: "man, its crazy. I won the first one, the second one was a little bit messed up, some guy in an Elvis costume knocked me down."

The event is intimidating, so runners are required to sign a waiver for the event to be safe; a reminder to participants that you really do only live once.

Each year draws more thrill-seekers to Cave Creek, Arizona. Winners do receive a cash prize for their runs.

"The way I look at it everybody dies not everybody really lives," Rochal said.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
