I have really been thinking about what shoes tell about a person. My uncle was a shoe store owner/buyer/salesperson, as well as my cousin, and his brother became a Podiatrist. Oh, I was also a shoe salesperson in my Uncle's store - even starred in a commercial! No, there isn't a foot fetish here! Actually feet gross me out and toes should always be hidden! Thank God for Keen Footwear!
Here goes another confirmation that Shoes tell a story about one's self. When Kelsi and I were in Slippery Rock and we entered North Country Brewing. Kelsi held the door open for two women leaving and I entered glancing at a middle aged couple sitting at a high bar table to my left. As we were seated, Kels said, "Did you hear what that couple said?" I said, "No". I knew they were looking at us. She said, " The man said to the woman as he was looking at our shoes, "You know....Shoes really tell a lot about a person." I had on Garmont Naughty Trail shoes and Kelsi had on Keen Mary Janes. As we left the establishment, a runner coming towards us was looking down at our shoes as he went by us.
Would you rather be with someone who is cultured, artsy, outdoorsy with trail sneakers, supportive quality shoes, or hiking boots vs chic high maintenance with heels, click clanking sandals, wing tips or basketball shoes that will fall off if one tried to run. There are times when we can't buy new shoes, shoe shabby state is comfortable, transitional times into another a non typical type of shoe depending on the occasion or hobby.
One thing that is disgusting are gals wearing look-alike, sheepskin UGG boots. They are gross , no support, smell, worn heels that turn in, and need peeled off to go to bed . EeeeWH! Guys need to have laces tied and wear the right non scuffing size.....this goes hand in hand with some of the laziness facing the generation being educated right now.
Be ready to walk the extra mile at any time!

I took him home and my husband had never seen one that small. I played with him a bit and then he was released to his upscale pond away from civilization - see his beeline to the water.

The injection is only temporary and it WORKED for the area of intense pain into my side of the neck !!! I have something wrong with the AC joint which will require surgery at some point. PT exercises for my neck for my cervical DDD may have irritated it. Sad to think I have an Ortho Surg for almost every joint in my body.
Many years ago, I hit the pavement running on my bike and had a direct blow to the shoulder and jaw and some MTB falls to avoid falling my fixed knees.
The FIELD was looking nice for being SHOT !

Gwadzilla http://gwadzilla.blogspot.com/ rantings. Kelsi was so elated she got to meet him and got one up on me!
Saturday we drove most of the morning to get to Stokesville.
1st SM100 for Gunnar and Betsy?!!
Super volunteers and racer Chris Wurster http://chriswurster.blogspot.com/ 69 and Beth. Aloha pint glasses!
Registration and setup all evening with Jimbo, Lynn, Kelsi, Chris & Beth and a couple of others. Kerry Combs http://ifchicks.blogspot.com/relief was welcome, which allowed us to get something to eat.
In the reg tent was Jon Meredith http://drj0nswanderings.blogspot.com/from Scotland. He was at the SSWC08 http://sswc08.blogspot.com/and flew across the states to attend the SM100. I remember this smiley pleasant fella from the W101 years ago and I don't know why.Stayed with Lynn for the duration. I wish I had my camera when it was daytime pit stop to feed: It was like a FUNNYFARM !!!with 2 Colorful Roosters, 2 Llahmas, a long hair bull with bike bar ends on his horns , and a beautiful show horse and four cats.
Pre sunrise we headed to Station #1 in which I was "the manager", set up stuff at the campground for the finish, cut some stuff in the kitchen, go to station #5 to drop off sweeper bikes, Station #6 and found three riders going the wrong way, at the expense of local hoodlums with nothing else better to do.
Alex Kopko http://kopko.blogspot.com/was hanging there, evidently he has a class at SRU with Josh....hmm things are coincidental.
Each and every rider and their hellos keeps me going in my life venture.

Then on Tuesday, after Kels was done with her BSA duties at Camp K, she wanted to go immediately to Eagles Mere - make the 125+ mile RT. Skeptical at first, but she said I am 19 and Josh is 22, we are adults. Me=???!!! Josh met us in his hometown of Hughesville. If I was younger - oh yeah. Opportunity (mountain biking, backpacking, hiking, caving, kayaking, rock climbing) for Kels to do these things. I hope to get on some of the trails and bike over to Worlds End State Park on the Loyalsock State Forest shared use trail, relax, visit with the Virgin Islands group who are all in town.
Aug 8 EMFC One Day Carnival
Aug 9/10 EMVI Art & Crafts Festival
Aug 9 EMAA Water Carnival "States"
Weird today, a girl at the gym said she was leaving for James Madison in Harrisonburg. Josh verified he wants to go to the Shenandoah SM100 on Labor Day weekend with me or a group from SRU.
