How did we miss this.
139 I should say. Amazing
If the news doesn't report it online somewhere, or he doesn't tell us about it, how are we to know?

More about Andrew:
I messaged him for recent news info.
I contacted Andrew. He says no news outlets have picked it up yet. I wrote to the ex-senior editor of Competitor Magazine, now freelance I believe, and a freelance writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution about his story to see if they'd be interested. If they don't, I can try some other contacts.
Way cool TJ! Yeah I saw his pic keep popping up in FB and I had been following the solstice over the weekend. Guess it is fresh news!
Unfortunately, it was turned down by the ex-senior editor at Competitor, but at least he had the decency to write me back, so I thanked him. I'm still waiting to hear back on the other, and I have other contacts too.
I wrote to some more freelance writers (Competitor Magazine and New York Times), ESPN directly as well as a staff writer of theirs, LA Times staff writer.
I will try some others like Running Times, Runners World, Running Journal, Live Strong, SF Gate, and the Wall Street Journal if I don't hear back soon from the others.
Running Journal replied. They're interested in doing a piece on Andrew. I put them in touch. We should have an article soon.
I will be attending the Desert Solstice race this year (2017 December 9-10). And if allowed, will set up the BarefootRunning.com canopy to support the barefoot runners, provide drinks, rest area, snacks, and shoot photos and videos and interviews with the barefoot runners.
