Crusted Salt comic strip is a runners unique look at running, racing, marathons, barefoot, and love with an occasional non-running related topic (a.k.a. secular). It is not for children (rated NSFK) as it sometimes includes mature themes, a saucy word or two, and a tad of comical nudity. Updates are muse-driven, so will happen in unpredictable spurts. If you subscribe to the RSS feed, I'll keep you posted. Enjoy——Jimmy
