We as potters think we live physical lives lifting clay, materials, pots, kiln shelves, chopping wood etc,etc. I think for the most part we sit on our duffs. A couple of years ago I got concerned about my BMI and started walking /running. I had a cheap pair of running shoes and really screwed up my arch. So determined this year to get into shape I got a good pair of shoes on sale. With that had to come all the paraphernalia to dress in. I have been doing the rail trail that follows the Niagara Escarpment and it is usually a friendly place with lots of people walking their dogs, joggers, cyclists, and people with ski poles and no skis.
