I did get quite a few things done today, and I also managed to squeeze in both ballet and coffee with Monika out by Pentagon City. I had a few errands there, of which one was to get new running shoes. Believe it or not, but I managed to break my old pair. I know, I couldn’t believe it myself. Ballet shoes, yes, but running shoes!!?? I’m happy if I do a few kilometers per week… Anyway, with a bit of pain in my legs after the morning’s dance exercises, I felt sporty enough to enter Hudson Trail Outfitters at Pentagon Row. I had of course forgotten to research the different brands’ labor standards properly beforehand, so I ended up asking the girl who helped me instead and she told me that there ambition was to keep their standards high in this regard and that they had actually dropped brands before who used child labor. I wish other stores would similarly conscious!
