    Warming up Westminster: Celtic Canter Irish 5k floods Main Street

    Mayan was a runner between the ages of 20 and 40 before encountering knee problems, and found barefoot running at 50 years old as a solution.


    Excerpt: About 20 minutes later, Westminster resident John Mayan, 60, crossed the finish line with his 5-year-old, 200-pound English Mastiff, Rudy.

    Mayan was a runner between the ages of 20 and 40 before encountering knee problems, and found barefoot running at 50 years old as a solution.

    He has been running at least a mile a day for the past six years with no shoes on, he said, after he finished the 5k on March 9, and has participated in the Celtic Canter for at least five of them.

    “Running has always been a cure-all for me,” Mayan said.

    Mayan finished the course in about 40 minutes, despite the cold and concerns regarding glass and debris in the street. He attributed his finish time to his running mate, though, who is on a weight-loss journey.
