Joann O’Connor Keeps Going

Um, Joann... your sunglasses!

Meet Joann O’Connor — a 62-year-old barefooter from Lake Lucerne in Crandon, Wisconsin.  Joann was the first female competitive barefooter in the Midwest, competing in the Regionals in 1967.  A motorcycle accident halted her barefooting journey for many years.  At the age of 54, she put her feet back on the water and has been having a blast ever since!  Despite a fused ankle, Joann learned to barefoot backwards.  For four years, she’s been working to barefoot backwards longline.  You can read more here:
