    Some very sad news to announce that Todd Ragsdale passed away while on a hike. Todd was on of the originators who pushed the boundaries when it came to barefoot running. I remember seeing a youtube video of him when he was attempting to run a 100 miler barefoot, the start of the race was in freezing temps and he made it to mile 20 before he had to bail out suffering from extreme frost bite. He also broke a Guinness book of world records for long distance barefoot on a track.

    That's so sad-and so young.
