Hello Running Mommies:
Today I sat in the rocker nursing my 13 month old and spent some time contemplating her beautiful baby feet and toes. They were just perfect. They fit in the palm of my hand and each tiny toe is perfectly formed. I looked at them for a while and caressed them, tickled them, kissed them and was in awe.
The thoughts took me to my size 10 maybe 10 1/2 not so beautiful feet/toes. I've always had big feet - at least the same size as my husband and definitely wider. Insults of all insults these flappers even got bigger with each baby. Size 9 seems petite to me these days. The thing is. I love these feet despite their very unfeminine girth. They have gotten me far. They've done 26.2 twice without complaining. They love to walk, they really love to run and they do not ask much. I'm alawys amazed that my husband never makes fun of them. They really are pretty ugly, but maybe because I love them so much they do not offer themselves up to ridicule. Lace them up and away we go........
