Breakfast trotters and a curious conundrum!

Got up as planned at 6am, quick cup of tea and then hit the trail for my first early morning Breakfast Trotters run.

It was a glorious morning, temperature rising steadily but I made it round my 7k trail run in 55mins so I was happy with that!

One very strange thing happened though; the long grass in the fields was really wet, so my Hoka Speedgoats got soaked and started squelching. About 1.5km from home, with very wet feet, I looked down and noticed white foam coming out of my trainers - eeeuuucchh! Was it soap suds left in my socks by the washing machine? I wear orthotics so have removed the original footbeds in my speedgoats and replaced them with trainer-tamed type soft foam indoors with my carbon fibre orthotics on top, so I wondered if it could be something in the trainer insoles?

Has anyone else had that experience? Weird!!

Are you sure it wasn't sweat as Sadie-runs 's post 🙂

Well done on the run, looks gorgeous.

I don’t think so - never had it before and I e run in hotter temps for longer. I wondered if it was some kind of washing powder residue from my socks, as my feet were soaking from the dew. Or maybe something in the odour eater insoles? Weird!

That is odd! Aliens maybe? See if a local clergyman does "trainer exorcisms" as a sideline?

Nice run tho!!

Oooh, you might have a point there - I didn’t think of ‘non-material’ sources. But hang on, there was a definite and quite loud ‘squelching’ sound going on too - not very spooky!
