DONE AND DONE: SHE DID IT!!!!
Rae Heim Ran Across the US (mostly) Barefoot!

Did we ever think it couldn't be done? Have you ever wondered if you have it in you to run across the country...barefoot?! Well, Rae Heim did just that, from Boston, Massachusetts, to Manhattan Beach, California. She set her mind to completing this incredible challenge, and SHE DID IT! Her smile is as big as her achievement, and I am sure it will last for a long, long time. So if anyone ever questions if it can indeed be done, we can all say yes! Mind you, on top of "Just Doing It," she did it without a support crew, without a $200,000 RV, and managed to keep her promise to hold true to the charity she believes in, Soles4Souls.

If you have anything you would like to ask Rae, please post...

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...

100 Miles in 9 Months: The Journey of a Reluctant Barefoot Runner
By Robert Knowles
Guinness Record Holder -- Twice! -TJ

In June of this year I fulfilled a 9-month obsession to run over 100 miles non-stop in bare feet in 24 hours. A description of this 24-hour run really can't be separated from the events that went before it, so I'll begin at the beginning...

Background and Philosophy

For the record, I was not born to run barefoot. As a child I enjoyed lush carpets and chunky training shoes. As an adult arriving in Australia from the UK 5 years ago, I would avoid removing my shoes on the beach in all but the softest sand, and only because the sand risked getting in my shoes....
