In the afternoon we went to the highschool to meet with the Friendswood Girls Cross Country Team, coached by Celeste Romell. After a brief Q&A we ran a few loops on the track and most of the girls took their shoes off too. We talked a little more about running barefoot.

What a great experience! I found myself at Westwood Elementary School, talking in front of 750 kids early in the morning, running with them in the field, and answering their questions. Meeting with the teachers and interacting with the kids all day was a great thing to do!
In another moving demonstration of generosity and care, the kids collected money for a few days and put them all in a bucket with messages of encouragement to Eden for the work she does helping kids in Africa. It was a very emotional moment for us. The entire day was full of demonstrations of support and enthusiasm from everyone.
BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) – The weather outside may be frightful, but it’s not enough to scare off one running man.
Milton Miller is currently running across the country to raise money for kids who don’t have any. He hit the road December 19, 2010 from Miami and made his way through Baton Rouge on Wednesday, Feb. 2.
“As much as it is for me, I try to lose weight become an athlete but now I’m trying to help other people,” he said in mid stride.
Miller wants to raise money for children in third world countries. He will end his 100 day marathon run in Los Angeles. The total trip is 2700 miles.
“Some people give me money on the road,” he said about his fundraising run.
All that cash will go to needy kids, but he’s not stopping there.
“When I was in New Orleans, I decided any dollar anyone gives me, I’m matching with a dollar of my own.”
It may sound like madness, but Miller says the whole experience has been fun.
