F-f-f-footrace Picture

A parody on some Greek mythology that my brother was reading for school or something I just happened to walk past while writing some notes. I just couldn't resist the urge to draw this situation and share it because it's just something that I'm really curious about~~ I really thought why this situation didn't happen~~ xDD

After the Calydonian boar hunt, Atalanta was discovered by her father. He wanted her to be wed, but Atalanta, uninterested in marriage, agreed to marry only if her suitors could outrun her, though fully armed, in a footrace. King Schoineus agreed and many young men died in the attempt until Melanion (or Hippomenes) came along. Melanion asked the goddess Aphrodite for help and she gave him three golden apples to toss as Atalanta caught up, in order to slow her down. The apples were irresistible, so every time Atalanta got ahead of Melanion, he rolled an apple ahead of her, and she would run after them. In this way, Melanion won the footrace and came to marry Atalanta.
