Laughing Stock

At the end of my run today--I went without shoes--I passed by a group of fifty or so kids, presumably on a field trip, returning to their school bus. They looked to be around 8-10 years old. My shoeless condition quickly caught their attention and for some reason they thought it was very funny. By the time I got by them they were all laughing hilariously and pointing at me like I was the strangest thing they'd ever seen--like I was a carnival freak or something.

It was almost enough to hurt my feeling....

You assume they were laughing at your bare feet? Maybe it was something else. Did you XYZPDQ?

There are no zippers on running shorts and the cold-weather induced shrinkage is added insurance.

Barefoot running in December... are you sure you even _had_ any feeling left to hurt?
