68-Year-Old Woman Runs Across America

“Rosie Swale-Pope is on a mission to raise cancer awareness and to inspire people to live life to the fullest and to never give up. Her dedication to giving was inspired by a loss to cancer. “By the time my husband and I realized, it was too late to save him, and after he died in my arms, I felt if I stayed at home just crying and talking, who would listen to me? And I decided to run around the world”. In her trips around the world, the incredible 68-year-old has run 27 marathons, including the 300 mile Sahara Marathon, twice. In total, Rosie estimates that she’s run about 50,000 miles, sometimes across entire continents. She does all this with a small trailer that she wheels along behind her, which she holsters to her waist and around her shoulders. The trailer, which she has affectionately named “Icebird”, is her home when she’s on the road, and can sometimes weigh up to 300 pounds when it’s full with her belongings. Swale-Pope’s current journey is focused on America. At the beginning of this year, she took off running from New York and has so far made her way south, spreading awareness and raising funds for the cause that is so dear to her heart”. – Rachel Charlip

Winston The Dog

1
A canine-crazy photographer helped make his dog healthy after seeing him raid the fridge by posing him up with fruit. Scott Cromwell, 43, from Oklahoma City, caught faithful mutt Winston guzzling hot dogs after he looted the refrigerator. Well-trained Winston was then happy to get his five-a-day by taking tongue-in-cheek snaps with red apples, bananas, grapes, limes and orange. Snapper Scott matched the color of the background to the fruit to create the eye-catching photos. The shots were given added gravity by placing the fruit on Winstons head in a nod to the myth behind Sir Isaac Newtons discovery of gravity after an apple fell and hit him on the head. Here: Winston raiding the fridge and going for the hot dogs. (Photo by Scott Cromwell/Caters News)

World’s Deadliest Pathway

The new Caminito del Rey (The King’s Little Pathway) is seen in El Chorro-Alora, near Malaga, southern Spain March 15, 2015. Dubbed by many media outlets as the world’s scariest pathway, the three-kilometre long pathway, which was built at about 100 metres (330 ft) above the gorge of Los Gaitanes between the years of 1901 and 1905, was closed in 2001 after five people died. A new walkway has then been built over the old walkway and will open to the public on March 28, 2015. (Photo by Jon Nazca/Reuters)

A Day In The Life Of Afghanistan’s Women’s National Cycling Team

Masooma Alizada, a member of Afghanistan’s Women’s National Cycling Team is reflected in a mirror at a house in Kabul February 20, 2015. Afghanistan’s Women’s National Cycling Team has been breaking new ground for women’s sports and pushing the boundaries of what is – and is not – acceptable for young women in the conservative Muslim country. Under the Taliban in the 1990s, women in Afghanistan were excluded from public life, banned from going to school or stepping outside their home without a male family member. Women’s rights have made gains since the hardline Islamist group’s ouster in 2001, but observers worry that progress is at risk as gender-based violence persists and women remain under-represented in politics.
