Today I tried out my shoes while hiking at Vasquez Rocks. The company wasn't kidding when they said these are true rock climbing shoes. I felt like Spiderman! I clung to the rocks as I made my way up and down the steep rock formations that my boys just had to climb. Also, after a night dancing in four inch wedge heels, it was soothing to let my feet connect to the ground again with just a thin layer of rubber separating me from the dirt. I did have to pay a little more attention to where I stepped so that I wouldn't get a sharp rock or worse yet, glass, poking my feet, but that was alright. My feet were happy.
I am looking forward to hiking many more trails in my shoes. It's such great, and really different, exercise for my legs. After seeing a woman with my body type wearing an awesome pair of short shorts at the club I went to last night, I know I can do this. Her legs looked phenomenal and so shall mine. They are already changing, but I have to keep at it. Happy trails to me!
