Welcome Bob Nicol, a.k.a., Barefooting Bob as our new Admin VP!


Bob Nicol (Barefooting Bob) has taken over the Administrative Vice President's position from Jamie Lee (Paleo). Jamie has had a lot of events taking place over the past few months that have called him in another direction. No loss for us, thankfully, as Jamie has moved into an Advisor role, along with Jason Robillard and Ken Bob Saxton, a lot of good company there! One of Bob's first responsibilities will be to coordinate the 2013 International Barefoot Running Day (taking place the second Sunday in May, the 12th) and the IBRD Tee Shirt Contest. Please welcome your new VP, and let's get to know Bob a little better.

Bob began his journey into the barefoot and minimialistic running world in January of 2010 and has been running happily ever since. Plagued by a number of knee and leg issues, he struggled to find...

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...
