As if you really wanted to look at my feet
However, here they are. This is what they look like after I've gone barefoot running.
I decided today that one of the reasons that I like running barefoot is that I have to pay attention to what my feet are doing while I'm running so that I don't step on dirty needles, shards of glass, and so forth. In other words, at the risk of sounding all Zen, I have to be thoroughly in the moment when my feet are naked, and I am cutting through the mud and grass. I can't be busy spinning scenarios of future catastrophes for me and mine, a skill in which I awesomely excel. (HIGH FIVE ME! WAY TO SPIN THOSE SCENARIOS OF CATASTROPHE!) In stead I have to pay attention to what's happening now.
Running barefoot = mood meds.
