Barefoot and...

I bet you thought I was going to say PREGNANT?

Fooled ya! Barefoot and RUNNING. For the past 6 months I have told hubs about a man that runs barefoot by my work. Yes, we are in June and I have seen him running barefoot in January and February. Hubs didn't believe me. He thought once again, my wife is a nut.

So this week, he had a doctor's appointment over by my work. (Side note, a doctor's appointment that turned out to be a donation of our co pay, b/c the doctor did not tell him anything about his ear, that we didn't already know). Anyway, he calls me when he is leaving the doctor's office and says "Barefoot runner". I said "What? You saw him?" Hubs had just seen this man that I have been wondering about for 6 months. He finally saw him and said he couldn't believe it.

So Mr. Barefoot Runner, I have a few questions:

1. Why? I mean, of all the shoe company's out there, you can't find a shoe that fits your foot like a glove?
2. Are you married? No, I am not interested. I am just wondering what your wife thinks. When you get home from running do you clean those pigs? I bet they are filthy!
3. What made you start running on STREETS (hot asphalt) without shoes? Did you just decide one day to take your shoes off while running and liked the feeling of your feet on hot/cold/wet/sandy pavement?
4. Men's feet are gnarly anyway, doesn't this make your's worse? Are the soles of your feet just raw?
5. What is the oddest thing you have ever stepped on?

If you know barefoot runner out there, please ask him these questions and let me know the answers. Enquiring minds want to know.

Hey! :) I heard that your name was Rachel too. My family and close friends call me Rayray too. Except obviously I spell it funny. I think I was a teenager before I realized Ray spelled that way is usually reserved for males. hehe...Oh well...just wanted to say Hi!
