Running Races In All 50 States


One of the best feelings in the world is the the excitement that builds in the moments leading up to a race!  It's even better for me if it's a race that I'm running for the first time and I get to see all new sights and people.  So to make things even more exciting, Lisa and I have decided on a new long term goal of running a race in all 50 states!

In 2012 we managed to run races in three different states:
Rantoul 5k - Rantoul, Illinois (first race)
St. Louis Half Marathon - St. Louis, Missouri (first half marathon)
Wine & Dine Half Marathon - Disney World, Florida (my dream race)

We think we can get through three or four states a year and can't wait to see some parts of the country we've never even visited. When possible, we'd like the race to be a half marathon...but our rule is that as long as it's a race (5k or more)  it counts.  I've created a new blog list on the left side to list our first race in each state!
