I can feel the grass between my toes in these!
|My first run in them ~|
|I like them.|
|That first night I felt like I could run forever!|
|Running here on the road, but I like them best on sand and grass.|
A few months ago, I thought I'd take my running shoes off and run a quarter mile or so on the grassy path in the park. It was great! It reminded me of my early girlhood days of playing outside.
I remembered Red Rover, Red Light - Green Light, and tag ~ all played barefoot in the grass. I remembered play and fun and friends and hot summer afternoons, and supper ready ceasing outside play for another day.
So for my approaching birthday, at an age when a woman like me remembers barefoot play and yearns for blades of grass between her toes as she runs and runs under a summer sky, I asked for barefoot running shoes.
And if you think a 40 something woman running barefoot in a park gets a few glances, you should run with me when I wear the "frog feet."
But I don't care. Cause when I run, I remember fun.
And the grass between my toes.
