…the spike on a track shoe.
This is the story of a 15-year-old girl who has a very clear understanding of the “everything is a weapon” concept I preach about so much. She used the spikes on her track shoes to fend off a man who was attempting to kidnap her.

My thanks to Gregg Smith and David Smith for making this possible! Watch Gregg as he points out where I hit. Enjoy!
