FAIRFIELD — Clad in an orange vest and pushing a stroller, Isaiah Godby traversed an overpass Tuesday in Cordelia before making the turn down Business Center Drive.

He was nearing the end of his 30-mile day and one day closer to ending a four-week journey that includes him running 760 miles from the Mexican border toward Sacramento.

All in the name of natural health.

As part of an event by www.therun.org, a nonprofit founded to educate the public of the benefits of natural medicine to overcome chronic health crises, Isaiah and his brother Jeremiah Godby will meet Wednesday in Davis after starting at opposite U.S. borders.
Jeremiah will be finishing up his 1,000-mile trek from the Canadian border.

Unlike their past run, which covered the entire country last year, they have no support vehicles or someone to push them along.

“We’re on our own. It’s a different town every day,” Isaiah said while resting in Fairfield. “You’re out there all alone. There are a lot more mental challenges. I knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Along the way they collected signatures for a petition for federal legislators to create access to natural medicine. Naturopathic doctors along the route hosted health festivals in more than 45 cities and towns to get exposure for natural medicine. That will culminate when the two brothers run together Thursday to Sacramento where they will take part in a ceremony.

Isaiah said this trip wasn’t about fundraising, but rather awareness.

“I didn’t want to make it about money,” he said.
