I ran four miles barefoot yesterday and so to give that set of muscles, etc. and my soles a break I thought it prudent to run in traditional running shoes today. I ended up going about seven miles. Four of those were in snow or a mud/snow slop; consequently my feet were soaked the entire time. Valerie (daughter) and I had made a deal earlier in the day and she owed me an accompanied mile so I decided to do the mile barefoot. Valerie ran barefoot too and liked it! I discovered that my feet were quite tender because running with them wet for over an hour was like a softening treatment. FYI
I'm married with three children; the oldest is 26 and is studying to be a nurse, and our youngest is an intense 8 year old who keeps his old parents on their toes...and knees. The middle one is studying Biology and Japanese at the local university and works at a lab on campus.
I currently teach high school Spanish as well as evening adult Spanish classes. My wife works with special needs elementary students.
I like to get out for a run a few times a week. The recent change of presidency has awoken the analyst in me.
