Donning a tan-colored loincloth, bone necklace, and nothing else, 50-year-old Glen Raines finished the 2017 Boston Marathon in 3:40:43. 

On social media, Raines goes by the nickname “Barefoot Caveman.” He completed his first marathon in the prehistoric getup in 2010. Despite a tailwind throughout the course, it appears the precariously-skimpy outfit remained intact the entire way. He fist-bumped a fellow runner as he crossed the finish line.

It has yet to be confirmed if he is busy hunting for his postrace meal near the Charles River.  runnersworld.com
A father's love for his unborn daughter has inspired a 26.2-mile run through the streets of Boston and has raised tens of thousands of dollars to benefit others with the same diagnosis.

Oliver and Kinnon Foley of Charlestown, Massachusetts, are less than a month away from the birth of their first child, a girl they named Tenley.

When Kinnon Foley was 11 weeks pregnant, they found out that their daughter would be born with Down syndrome.

"About six weeks after the diagnosis, the idea struck me — this would be my best opportunity to run a marathon," Oliver Foley told ABC News. "I learned the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress had one bib left. It felt like it was meant to be."

Down syndrome, also called trisomy 21, results when a person has three copies of the 21st chromosome. Typically people have two. The effects of the extra chromosome vary widely among people with Down syndrome, but it can cause developmental and physical challenges. Almost 1 in 800 babies in the U.S. is born with Down syndrome, according to research published in The American Journal of Medical Genetics. 

The Foleys first connected with the organization soon after Tenley's diagnosis. They were referred by "every doctor and geneticist" to the MDSC first-call program, which connects parents new to a Down syndrome diagnosis, whether pre- or postnatal, with families that had similar experiences. go.com
A fitness blogger has shared photographs of her hairy legs and armpits in the hope it will inspire others to embrace their natural beauty. Morgan Mikenas has more than 7,000 followers on Instagram, where she posts about her incredible fitness regime and transformation after she took up bodybuilding.

Last year, she embraced the natural look and ditched razors for good. She hasn't shaved her armpits or legs since the beginning of 2016. In a video posted to her YouTube channel entitled 'Why I Don't Shave', she flashes her armpit and says she wants to explain to her followers why she doesn't remove body hair.

"I guess my number one reason why I stopped was that it just took so much time. It took so much of my time to get in the shower and have to shave everything and then wash my hair and then wash my body it's just like another thing. I just, one day, was like 'why am I doing this anymore? This just takes so much time.'

In one Instagram post, she said: "What is beauty anyway? To me... it's to be beautiful before someone else told you what beautiful is supposed to be.. Just as you are, you are beautiful." mirror.co.uk
