Guinness World Record title for most barefoot half marathons run on consecutive days
By Guinness World Records

For nearly five years, Sonny Molina hasn’t stopped running; entering as many marathons in the US and Philippines as he possibly can.

However, Sonny is not your average athlete. He doesn’t lift weights, does not follow intense regimens, and doesn’t even go to a gym to train for his competitions.

Every day, he gets up and runs 3-6 miles on gravel trails and concrete paths, completely barefoot. To continue reading, please visit: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/news/2017/4/monday-motivation-sonny-molina-sole-runner-469431

No shoes, no problems for 59-year-old marathon runner
Malibu Surfside News
In 2007, marathon runner Alberto Perusset’s coach had a peculiar idea. He suggested that Perusset should try running barefoot.
Perusset was skeptical. Most marathons are held on city streets. What about rocks, broken glass and hot asphalt? These things, he learned, were minor distractions — not major roadblocks. Ten years and 98 barefoot marathons later, he’s never looked back. To continue reading, please visit: http://www.malibusurfsidenews.com/no-shoes-no-problems-59-year-old-marathon-runner

Thomas Cunningham-Maffetoning to Boston!
By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella

Sharing the story of online friend and fast Masters runner Thomas Cunningham. It’s never too late to learn new things about your inner machinery. Thomas see you in Hopkinton! Your butcher is right….the Ribeye is awesome and you cannot mess it up.


I ran my first marathon in 1994 in a time of 3:44. Over the last 23 years, I’ve been able to bring that time down significantly. I’ve run three sub-3:00 marathons, including a 2:58 in Boston last year. At 48 years old, I am still looking to improve, and I believe that my best race is ahead of me.

Last fall I made a couple of significant changes to diet and training, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in Boston in a couple of weeks. To continue reading, please visit: http://naturalrunningcenter.com/2017/03/18/thomas-cunningham-maffetoning-boston/
