Join Rae Heim as she completes Rae's Run across America .. barefoot (mostly)By Barefoot Ken Bob Saxton Soles 4 Souls is planning a big celebration at the end of Rae’s Run across America at the Manhattan Beach Pier on Wednesday morning starting at 10:00 AM. There will be lots of cool, and very important people at this event (I can’t even tell you all who will be there because some of them are a secret … shhh!) Rae Running across America is a HUGE deal for barefoot runners. She has run most of the way barefoot, she will be the youngest person ever (not just barefoot) to run across America. She may be the first person to run barefoot across America. And she's also a female running solo! (no support team following her in an R.V., no police escort, just a few friends who occasionally come out and run with her, or meet her at her finish point for the day, and give her a ride to where she is staying, and back again to begin the next day's run." I think only a few places with nasty gravel she may have worn socks or something, but the reason she runs barefoot - shoes hurt her feet (after a foot surgery). Oddly, I've never had a foot surgery and shoes have always hurt my feet!
