    Joyful. Nice read!
    Some phrases:
    • "your shoes are bouncing off the uneven surface like rugby balls"
    • "[...]even the great Kenyan distance runners, who grow up barefoot, tend to wear name-brand shoes in all their races now: more perhaps for the cushioning impact of the sponsorship than the padding"
    • "It was good to be reminded that you had five toes on each feet, all semi-autonomous"
