    Great story, although with some sad implications. Bill Rhoad is an inspiration to all runners barefoot or otherwise! I can only hope to still be able to run at all at that age. I'm only 59 and I've already given up hope of having that much hair! :D :barefoot:

    "Old news is good news." I don't run that fast, or in such competitions. I just hope I can keep running. Pretty inspirational. Learning how to run hurdles would be a dream! Go, my fellow old Rhoad-runner: the coyote's after you! My last name's "Rohde," too, by the way, spelled that way. I doubt we're related, but we obviously share a common affinity for the "road." And every once in a while I do try to envision that coyote on my tail. Beep Beep!

    My running took a turn for the way better starting a few years ago due in large part to me setting a new goal: be able to run well into my 90s. I'm 47 so that means 1/2 a century more of running ahead of me. That also means stop worrying about "Gosh, have I put in enough miles for this next race? What about my speedwork? Should I run through this nagging pain? What about muh gains!" Instead, just relax, take it easy and run for the sake of running.
