I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
So if your like me you hate it when your shoelaces tickle your ankles, especially when running. If so I have a quick fix for you, and a slightly quicker fix as well.
First the quick fix. Take a short piece of Velcro (hook and loop tape, whatever you want to call it) and poke a few holes in it and add two grommets to it.
Once it is laced onto your shoe it does a fine job.
And now the quicker method. Take a twist tie and use it to tie the flapping laces to the crossed laces. This works great, I used it for more then a year, until you need to take your shoe off in a hurry and you have stripped off all the plastic from the twisty. Sorry no pics.
Now I’m off to make a few more lace controllers for the motorcycle boots. The last thing I want is to get the laces caught in the chain or rear wheel. Yikes!
On the 22nd of June the , or ECEC as the locals call it, held their annual butterfly run. Mom came in first in her age category. W00T!! What makes it extra sweet is that it is her first foot race ever.
