    John Raines, known as the Barefoot Caveman, bumps fists with Thomas J. Motherway after crossing the finish line of the 2017 Boston Marathon.

    Donning a tan-colored loincloth, bone necklace, and nothing else, 50-year-old Glen Raines finished the 2017 Boston Marathon in 3:40:43. To continue reading, please visit: http://www.runnersworld.com/boston-marathon/nearly-naked-caveman-crushes-boston-marathon

    Special Note: Glen is a long time member of the BRS and was active for quite some time here. Miss him.

    Pretty impressive! He looks incredibly fresh at the finish line of a marathon, and the time's nothing to be sneezed at either. Wish I could do that.

    Mind you, the caveman look would be even better if he didn't shave his chest. ;)

    That's a pretty ballsy outfit!! I wonder how he manages the bouncing!

    Jokes aside, that's a great time and a very memorable way to run a marathon!! Respect!

    Barefoot Caveman has two names? Is it John Raines or is it Glen Raines?

    Mind you all, he's 50 years old! Damn he looks good!

    We always referred to him as Glen here. His full name is John Glen Raines.

    If I had that body I'd run naked too. Unfortunately, I NEVER had a body like that, at 50 or otherwise. :(

    Thanks for the post Barefoot TJ! It was an incredible day! The day after the marathon though I had to fly to Europe for a first-time European tour with a really busy itinerary, so the marathon and the Runner's World article is now finally starting to sink in now that I'm back home. OMG
