JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida attorney ran 160 miles in six days to raise money for legal aid.

Jacksonville attorney Mike Freed started at the Florida Supreme Court in Tallahassee. He then stopped at courthouses in Jefferson, Madison, Suwannee, Columbia and Baker counties before finishing Friday near home in Duval County. It was the equivalent of running a marathon per day.

The Florida Times-Union reports ( ) that 44-year-old Freed started running less than a year ago but suffered no injuries during his trek, not even blisters.

He raised more than $50,000 for Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, which provides legal help to low-income individuals and families.
