New Barefoot Star Explodes in Japan

Mr Ishikawa just won his age group during All Japan Triathlon Race, Strongman Miyakojima. This is one of the most competitive long distance triathlon races.

He did all barefoot during the running part.  and if you look at this pic carefully, you'll see his wife is running with vibram fivefingers.  What a great achievement. He finished 17th overall, and his wife finished 11th overall.  A Super couple!

Conglatulations to Mr and Ms Ishikawa!!!

p.s.  Mr Ishikawa actually ran a 100km race in 8hours59mins last year also all barefoot on asphalt.  The world record is set on running track, so you know this is worth record already. He even took a wrong way during the race so I lost about 10-15mins. So he's practically a world record holder. I cannot wait when we do a world record challenge in Atsugi, Japan in November.
