It was time to get out the sheet metal screws my Dad got for me and make some screw shoes out of my oldest pair of trainers. I could tell I had salvaged some of the screws from last year because they were all rusty but they went into the bottoms of my old New Balance (over a year old now but only 200+ miles) shoes.
I had to return our RedBox rental of The Help (a MUST see) at Walmart and the health food store, Nature’s Pantry, was just opening as I ran by. I popped in and ran home with 2 bunches of kale and realized just how funny I looked. First off, I feel pretty hard core to be out running in 20° weather. Secondly, the screw shoes make running in slippery conditions a breeze and it looks like magic that I am not sliding around. Lastly, I was running, in the snow and ice, with KALE in my arms. What a sight. I had to reenact my final approach to my back door for the camera.
