    Christopher Iowane stormed down the last 50 metres at a frantic pace to win the 10 kilometres race in the Namosi Marathon yesterday.

    So cool!!!

    “I have shoes, but I have always run without shoes,” he said after the race.

    “I prefer it that way. I don’t feel the sharp stones because they do not affect me.”

    I am far from being able to not care for sharp stones :(:mad: Anywho, it is inspirational:happy::barefoot:
