50 Marathons/50 States

 

I remember when the thought of running more than five miles seemed daunting an unattainable (some days a three mile run still feels that way). I do not remember the day I decided to set a lifelong goal of running 50 marathons in 50 states. I do remember the idea evolving in 2015 after completing my first full IRONMAN. Not sure if I was looking for the next challenge or if I just completely lost all my marbles somewhere along the IRONMAN Texas course that year. However, the lifelong goal currently remains. My current plan is to race two marathons a year (as life permits).

Completed:

  1. Florida – Tallahassee Marathon 2014 and 2015
  2. Louisiana – Rock n Roll, New Orleans 2015
  3. Texas – IRONMAN Woodlands, Texas 2015
  4. Mississippi –  Blues Marathon, Jackson 2016
  5. Alabama – Big Beach Marathon, Gulf Shores 2017
  6. Ohio – Inaugural Youngstown Marathon 2017

In-Training:

     7. Tennessee – St. Jude Marathon, Memphis (December 2017)
