Barefoot Todd (AKA: the Barefoot Coach) has been running a lot of marathons for several years. Since 2004, he has been running most of them barefoot.
Barefoot Todd is Barefoot Ted’s quieter barefoot counter-part. Barefoot Todd has been running barefoot since 2000 January – nearly 5 years before Ted discovered running barefoot.
Todd ran his first 9 (nine) barefoot marathons in 2004 (the year Ted discovered barefoot running). Todd had also completed nearly 200 marathons in shoes (his 300th marathon is looming in the not-so-distant future).
Running Barefoot was a matter of choice and convenience for Todd.
