Ode to my Feet

Dear Feet,

I know you work so hard to keep me going every day. You run countless miles for me with rarely a complaint. You walk all over the world in a simple pair of black $2 Old Navy flip flops. You spread your toes wide to keep me on balance and most of all you allow me to be fit.

I try to pamper you...paint your nails a pretty blue with flowers:

I try to rub your high arches and relax your tense muscles. And I know that there are days when all you want to do is feel the warm sand underneath you:

Trust me when I say I would love that too. But for now we must keep running. I need you to be strong and pound the pavement along the familiar roads and trails. I need you to be quick and brisk. I need you to hold on and remain the foundation of me and my fitness. This is my ode to you, my feet. I know I don't say it enough but Thank You for being YOU.

Today I am grateful:
-that I am injury free and able to run.
-for all my new blog followers! 18 and counting!!!
-a possible job lead that I will be following up on tomorrow!
-that the hubs will be home in 6 days!

Run Happy!

  1. Thanks! I needed to have a talk with my toes, too!

  2. Thanks for following me and cute post!

    As a runner and soccer player, my feet are not my greatest feature. In fact, I'm sporting two very sexy black toe nails. Which will get covered up with the darkest polish I can find. :)

  3. Love the pictures...you WILL NOT be seeing a photo of my narly toes on my Blog anytime soon people who RUN away..

    6 days!! And a possible job, sounds like a good week.

    FYI am considering running the Seattl Half...will keep you posted.

  4. Very cute post! Here's to not taking our poor beat-up feet for granted!


You're pretty much awesome!!
