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!

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.

July 27th 2014
Number 5125 and you can check the time here: http://www.emociondeportiva.com
There’s really not much to say, the route was a little bit different in the city, it wasn’t as pretty as passed years but this time included some hills and crossing in a big park (Chapultepec park is the equivalent of central park in NY).
The weather was excellent and everything was set to go! This time I felt I was ready to compete being BF, so far my longest BF distance was 15 Km in the trail where I train.
I was a little worried because some streets were very harsh and abrasive but If you concentrate into apply a good technique all the way around you can be sure that there’s nothing to worry.
The race started at 7am along...
