I said good by to a pair of old friends this week.
They have been my constant companions since August 2013,
logging in 6,638,362 steps
We went to all the familiar places
one last time.
There were daffodils
big rocks, waterfalls
and mud puddles.
all followed by a short visit to the massage chair.
I kept my eye on the treads
when apparently I should’ve been watching the inside.
The treads still look good.
The insides are demolished, though,
all padding and support long gone.
I went shopping when I read that
you need to replace shoes after
300-500 miles of walking.
If you’re a glass-half-empty person,
I guess I waited a little too long.
A glass-half-full person would say
I got my money’s worth.
