#100happydays Day 32 Memories in worn out shoes

Worn out shoes

While tiding up my shoe box, I look at all my worn out shoes and remember where they have taken me and the fun I’ve had in them. I just want to keep them because they store all those memories.

#100happydays Worn out Shoes

This is a pair of Brooks Adrenaline shoes that I wore for a Halliburton Forest 50k.


Running Free has a good thing going for worn out shoes. They collect them for recycling to send to feet that need shoes. Most running shoes that we think are too worn out to run in still have life in them for someone who doesn’t have any shoes. Nick and his team ship them off to places like Sierra Leone, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Cuba, Bolivia – and to aid services in Canada. I have had people come into the store and thank me for the shoes they got through our collection and recycling program. So that’s probably where my shoes with memories are going, to collect more memories.

Go into any Running Free to drop off your worn out running shoes. They’ll make sure that they get a new pair of feet.
