I like the feel of the ground. It gives me joy, makes me feel light and connected to the moment. That’s why I take off my shoes or sandals wherever possible. I walk or run. Sometimes, right in the city center. Most of the time, more like in the seaside towns.

I’m not joking when I say “I run barefoot”! I once ran a 10k in Utrecht and about a 6k in Izmir. After that, I decided to join a public run at least once a year but then came the virus worldwide, cancelling all of the events. I returned to running in April 2022, until I joined Wings For Life World Run for the second time. However, it has been too hot to run in Izmir.
