I’ve been running barefoot for a few years now. I started when I was living in Savannah, where the weather never gets very cold. Now that I’m in Seattle, winter temperatures hover around freezing. The cold turns your feet white and your toes bright red, and it hurts in a way that I can only describe as bright. It’s like - imagine having a bowl full of light that’s the same kind of light the sun gives on winter days, and then imagine dipping your toes in.
That said, I think I’ll be staying inside a little more often til it gets warmer out =____=
