 	if it's important, you ought to be able to feel a difference -
 	for example, the difference between running on tarmac (asphalt)
 	and earth is obvious, especially if you have a slight injury
 	(when it can hurt on one surface, but not on the other).

 	a ntoiceable difference, but i haven't tried it...
