� Keeling, when he went into his library, found Alice already there, sitting limply in front of the fire. She turned round when her father entered, and fixed on him a perfectly vacant and meaningless stare. Till then he had no notion what he should say to her: now when he saw that blank tragic gaze, he knew there was no necessity to think at all. He understood her completely, for he knew what it was to lose everything that his soul desired. And his heart went out to her in a manner it had never done before. She sat there helpless with her grief, and only some one like himself, helpless also, could reach her. Her silliness, her excited fussinesses had been stripped off her, and he saw the simplicity of her desolation.{334} From him had fallen his hardness, and in him she divined a man who, for some reason, could reach her and be with her. Before he had walked across the room to her, her expression changed: there came some sort of human gleam behind the blankness of her eyes, and she rose. 鈥淩isk鈥?isn鈥檛 quite the right term; it鈥檚 more like 鈥渄ead certainty.鈥?Every year, anywhere from 65 to80 percent of all runners suffer an injury. That鈥檚 nearly every runner, every single year. No matterwho you are, no matter how much you run, your odds of getting hurt are the same. It doesn鈥檛matter if you鈥檙e male or female, fast or slow, pudgy or ripped as a racehorse, your feet are still inthe danger zone. � Lananna insisted. That鈥檚 why he made sure his runners always did part of their workouts in barefeet on the track鈥檚 infield. 鈥淚 know as a shoe company, it鈥檚 not the greatest thing to have asponsored team not use your product, but people went thousands of years without shoes. I thinkyou try to do all these corrective things with shoes and you overcompensate. You fix things thatdon鈥檛 need fixing. If you strengthen the foot by going barefoot, I think you reduce the risk ofAchilles and knee and plantar fascia problems.鈥? 鈥淪orry鈥攚ho are you?鈥? � 鈥淭he risk is too great,鈥?said he; 鈥淪oltikof has seventy thousand men, and no end of artillery. We have but twenty-six thousand, and know not that we can bring a single gun to where Soltikof is.鈥? An ordinary eye would not have seen in the position any peculiar military strength. It was an undulating plain about eight miles long and broad, without any abrupt eminences. A small river bordered it on the west, beyond which rose green hills. On the east was the almost impregnable fortress of Schweidnitz, with its abundant stores. Farm-houses were scattered about, with occasional groves and morasses. There were also sundry villages in the distance. � � �
