National Running Day

Today is "National Running Day." Well, what are you waiting for...get out the door and run! Not sure these special days do much to promote their cause, but it can't hurt to spread the word. Tell your co-workers and friends. Get a colleague to run. Tell them how great it feels to finish that 2, 3, 5, or 10 mile run. Maybe even run a few strides sans shoes...

Monday, June 1, was "National Go Barefoot Day." I forgot to mention it...I'm still a bit hesitant to hit the trails barefoot after getting a thorn THROUGH my shoe and into my toe last week! The toe seems to be fine today...thanks for asking. If you missed National Go Barefoot Day, don't worry, there is still "Barefoot Sunday"on June 7. Soles 4 Souls is the founder of these barefoot days. Apparently the celebration is actually going on all week.

Its too hard to remember all these dates. From the other day, I read the same thing about how your nervous system is protective of things you step on when barefoot. I'm finding that to the nth degree. There are grades. If something is not sharp, like a rock or root, my foot automatically conforms to the object nullifying any pain. Amazing.

Don't forget that "National Trail Day" is June 7. Too many dates!

Pretty cool how the foot/body adapts when it is allowed to feel its surroundings.
