50 State Running Challenge... Accepted.

My friend (and Ragnar Teammate) Rik is planning to run a marathon in each of the fifty states. Pretty impressive, right? I've decided to take that idea and modify it just a bit. Instead of marathons, I am going to count any official, organized running event.

Yes, I am aware it's a big challenge. But what the heck? I'm not setting any time limit on it. As long as I am still able to run (or walk, if it came to that), I can still work on crossing states off of my list.

So far, I have run in seven states.

Obviously, I have run other events. But the ones listed here are the first for each of the states.

So... where to next?


  1. I love this idea! Sounds like a great way to combine running and traveling.

  2. Are you giving yourself a time limit? I hope not! Enjoy it all and don't worry so much about crossing them off your list. I hope Ric gets to see some of the country with you. I'd like to check a certain other activity off the list in different states... That doesn't take hours on end and I probably could walk and see the sites afterwards...
