How much have you earned at your job the last seven months? Chances are it's more than American athlete Lolo Jones did.
As you may know, the track star has turned to bobsleigh and it turns out that pushing a sled down a hill doesn't pay as much as, well, anything. Not flipping burgers. Not digging ditches. Not folding T-shirts at Gap. Not even collecting unemployment benefit.
Seven months of bobsleigh has earned Ms Jones a grand total of $741.84 (£474.69). That's $105.97, or just under 68 quid, a month.
She revealed her earnings on Vine along with a caption that read "I'm going to be shortRead More »from Lolo Jones has earned £68 a month since taking up bobsleigh, but sport brands her ‘snobby’ for revealing all

It's a hot, sunny day in June on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily, but the problem is that I'm not on the beach, I'm running up a volcano.

This is Mount Etna, at 3,330 meters (10,926 feet) the highest volcano in mainland Europe and one of the most active in the world, and on Saturday I was one of 160 starters gathered on the beach for the "Etna Supermarathon."
The 43 km (27 miles) race is just a tad over the official marathon distance of 42.2 km. But much more significantRead More »from Racing up Europe’s highest volcano in the Etna Supermarathon
