A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?

The red shoes

Today I put on my new shoes.

They are red, and very special. Firstly because I don’t think I’ve owned a pair of scarlet red shoes before, although I have always wanted to. Secondly their soles are ‘gel tec’ whatever that may actually mean.

The initiated among you will have guessed by now that I have entered into the world of athletic activities. As these aren’t necessarily in my blood- especially if linked with any kind of bodily punishment I thought red could be a positive colour for me on the days when I might think up an excuse for not going.

It’s not that I’m training for the classic race of ancient Greece yet, although my motto was always- Per adua ad Astra, and my shoes do have a little grey and black in them too. Just so as not dazzle me. They are also walking shoes-first things first.

The appropriate costume for this sport art is also hanging in my wardrobe, one has to be fittingly dressed these days to be taken seriously. Today though I just kept my jeans on,the shoes took courage enough, and I havn’t acquired sticks yet.Might never need them if I’ve got London or NYC in mind.

‘The reds’ stood the challenge well, and my feet too;-five kilometers and no blisters.
