Beautiful fall day in MN for a barefoot marathon! I'm very happy with my performance mostly because I didn't hit any real wall throughout the run.

a little bit of History...

“Then a man of Benjamin ran from the battle line the same day, and came to Shiloh with his clothes torn…”

One of the first runs recorded in human history is mentioned in the Bible, in the beginning of the book of Samuel. At the end of the war between the Israelites and the Philistines, the “man of Benjamin” runs from the battlefield at Eben Ezer (modern day Rosh Ha’ayin) to Shiloh, city of the Tabernacle.

Many centuries later, the founder of the Maccabiah games, Yosef Yekutieli, set out to measure the length of the course from Rosh Ha’ayin to Shiloh, in the Benjamin region.

Crazy Barefoot Marathon - Rotterdam
By Christian Pinon

Samedi dernier a eu lieu le Crazy Barefoot Marathon à Rotterdam. Avec 12 personnes au départ et quelques accompagnateurs, l'ambiance était très amicale. Nous avons couru 42,73 km en 5h11' sur un beau parcours. Les routes et sentiers en sont très bien entretenus aux Pays-Bas.
La photo ci-joint vous donne un aperçu de l'ambiance.

Nous avons même eu droit à la présence de journalistes dont voici une courte vidéo (la plus courte) :
