As if running 26.2 miles is not difficult enough, think about running with no shoes! That’s what my friend, Casey Cochran, founder of the Green Guide Network is doing this Sunday. He’s running barefoot in the Santa Barbara Marathon to raise money for kids without shoes. He’s partnered with TOMS Shoes, and you can still support his fundraising efforts. Just enter “Casey Cochran” in the “In Honor of Field” on the Friends of TOMS donation page, otherwise TOMS won’t know where the donation came from. Here’s his blog, where you can find out more and how to support his barefoot marathon.
