AKA: Barefoot Todd Byers
AKA: The Barefoot Coach
- In excess of 100 barefoot marathons completed (as of 2011 January 16)
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 (note the subtle difference in the spelling of “Ted” and “Todd”). Barefoot Todd has been running barefoot since 2000 January – Nearly 5 years before Ted discovered barefoot running.
Todd ran his first 9 (nine) barefoot marathons in 2004 (the year after 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 – it is easier to jump in the ocean during an ocean-front marathon if you don’t need to bother with your shoes…
