ok, I had this response ready.... I was near the end of a run several days ago. I'm friends with my neighbor, Josh. Josh was out watering his lawn in the evening. I came trotting by, and said howdy, and pulled up on his lawn for a chat. A few seconds later, he looks at my feet and says, "You run barefoot?" Anticpating this type of question (since I read this thread a week or so ago,) I looked down, gasped in excalmation, "Agghhh!! My shoes! Where'd my shoes go?!?!" We both got a good chuckle out of that. Then I proceeded to tell him the benefits of running with naked feet.
