We’ve all been there: mindlessly scrolling through your Insta feed when you decide to go down the Posts You Might Like rabbit hole. The algorithms know you’re a runner, and suddenly you’re inundated with watch shots, post-run hands on hips timed selfies, and a strange inkling that something just isn’t quite what it seems.
How the eff do you get your leg all the way that way?
Who the heck runs with toes pointed?
How was this moment captured without a team of photographers and maybe a few pulleys and ropes?
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so this week we Saltines, inspired by #CelesteBarber, found some of our favorite popular ‘grammers and decided to try to recreate some of these amazing shots. #challengeaccepted

Why post a shot of the watch on your wrist, when you can show your stats and your contouring skills? (Left: @oliwiawilczynska. Right: Pimento)
In case you do not know your numbers yet, count fingers for miles. (Left: @daniellehartruns. Right: Mango)
