Well – March has come in more as a lamb than a lion – but that can change!
We wanted to release our newsletter yesterday which was National Pi Day –3.14 – (please- someone laugh) but our focus got caught up on National Toe Day which is April 6. Yes that day is Good Friday but now is the time to start getting ready for sandal season!
We are partnering up with local businesses so stay tuned for event invites and updates via The Good Sole newsletters and Facebook pages. And now Pinterest?? This social media world keeps us busy! But, as with everything that we try to do – we are giving you an educational piece of our newsletter. Since it is toes there are three exercises we recommend:
OUR TOES NEED EXERCISE: Even though they are the smallest appendages on our body, we need to work the little muscles in the toes to improve balance and help our feet through the full range of motion The three I am suggesting should be done while sitting ( and yes, socks and shoes should not be worn!)
Second: Get two pans/buckets/ baskets and…put a group of either small river rocks or marbles in one container. Then, transfer the items from one bucket of items to the other with one foot, and then back to the other foot. CAUTION : Dogs and cats may think this is fun and try to eat the items so be ready to say “No!”
Third: Grab a towel and do the same exercise as in number one – scrunch!
We are so excited – The Good Sole was selected to host the planet Jupiter during the Taos Charter School’s Planet Drive. This is one of the most fun events that a local school has done and it is headed up by one of our favorite teachers, Rich Greywulf ( Mr. G) who loves taking care of toes! – he runs in Vibram 5 Fingers!
