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....
