Inspirational Paul walked 200 miles BAREFOOT to show anyone can battle their demons
By Gazette Live

When Paul Burgum’s bare feet throbbed and ached as he surveyed the 200 mile walk ahead of him, it was the “little wins” that kept him going.

Charity founder Paul walked the width of England with no shoes in a marathon 10 day trek but was kept going by the kindness of strangers - or something as small as the sun breaking through the clouds.

1812 Challenge & Half Maraton
August 27, 2017

By Tristan

This race is a favorite of mine, and still the only one I've done in my home state of NY. It honors the War of 1812, and the race finishes on the battlefield in Sackets Harbor. The town was a key Navy shipyard and it's headquarters for the Great Lakes. This will be my third time at the event, but for the first time I only entered the half marathon. I hadn't kept up with my running like I should have through the summer, and went over a month with my longest runs of only 5 or 6 miles.

The Zen of barefoot running
By Julia Chi

I am a barefoot running nomad, journeying around the globe, the planet my home… I love to run.

I have been running all of my life, following the running road wherever it has led me… From the early days as a young teenager when I raced around a grass track in my bare feet, to running at top level, my first international race a 5k X country competition in Spain, to posting a marathon best time of 2.36.31 in the 1986 London marathon.

I have traveled the world all of my life, loving running wherever I am, in races, or just exploring the towns and countryside and beaches I pass through as I journey.

Both my running and working in the lives of others as their mentor, coach, and guide...
