Axa Mountain Marathon
By Line Kolbe
I had a wonderful weekend but the marathon, Axa Fjällmaraton, didn't go as planned at all.
We, Thomas had taken some days off from his work to come with me, had a long way to drive to get up to the Swedish mountains, about 1000 km, so we drove up on two days and got to the start place the evening before. The race was made so you could choose your own start time and could start between 7 and 9 o'clock. This race is called "Öppet Fjäll" (Open Mountain) because you have that two hour span where you can start. This is great...

By Barefoot TJ
Andrew Snope had only been running for three years when he set the new Guinness World Record for the Longest Barefoot Run yesterday, August 9, 2014! He beat the previous record from 2013 of 131.43 miles by Peter Wayne Botha from New Zealand (a BRS member!). You can read more about Botha here, and see pictures too: http://thebarefootrunners.org/threads/sri-chinmoy-24-hour.15012/#post-143032

Barefoot in Longwood Gardens
I was fortunate to spend a day with my oldest brother at a place called Longwood Gardens. It's a remarkable place and quite beautiful. But I expanded its beauty on this most recent trip because I spent much of my time there barefoot. I have seen the flowers there many times before, but this was the first time that I experienced walking over the pathways. Truthfully enough, the asphalt pathways were nothing remarkable, but the areas where there were smooth stone pathways were delightful. So were the places where we could walk upon the grass in the meadow area and the dirt and wood chips in the woods. I felt quite happy to touch upon the many different textures. I enjoyed it, my feet enjoyed it. Seriously. Think about that if you're someone who lives in shoes most...
