Running shoe laces, thread, metal, wool

An old runner’s saying goes, “When your legs get tired, run with your heart.” ┬áThese laces from running shoes are sewn together, connected in all their wear and dirt. Where running is good for the physical heart, I believe the relationships developed through sport to other runners and to oneself is more important than the health benefits. There is a community of runners connected through passion, commitment, and common understanding of what it feels like to continue on when your legs don’t want to.
