Of course the Northwoods also has wildlife.

I’ve heard story after story of shod runners who had to stop because of their knees. Then, after switching to barefoot running, they are able to take it up again, because barefoot running really doesn’t allow the kind of heel strike that thuds up to the knees that you can only get from heeled, padded shoes.
So, what do you do with that already damaged cartilage?
Last year there were a bunch of hikes at Clear Creek Metro Park as their executive director, John O’Meara, trained for his attempt to scale Mt. Everest. They were so popular that he’s doing them again, even without the training incentive.
The first one of this season was on Saturday.
Two weeks ago I wrote about not being able to find the opinion regarding a supposed Georgia Supreme Court ruling (involving a Kroger grocery store) in which the judge asked the woman involved if she could have prevented the injury by some reasonable method, and that because she could have, the owner of the store could not be held liable.
The way the description was written made it sound like a barefoot case. Well, the person who wrote about it clarified things. It was not a barefoot case, and he even gave the name of the case, so I could look it up.
Unfortunately, it really doesn’t say what he says it says. In fact, the court case he refers to makes it easier, barefoot or not, to sue and win such a negligence case in Georgia.
