During mile 10 of the 2010 Hartford Marathon, I was passed by an older gentleman. On the back of his shirt said, “50 Marathons in 50 States.” However, it was crossed out and written above was the word “TWICE.”

It was at that moment I knew I needed to accomplish the same goal. While tallying and planning my Full Marathon calendar, I realized that I also have been racking up Half Marathons in different States as well …

GOAL 1: Complete 50 Full Marathons in 50 States by the time I’m 50. Completed marathon that is part of a 140.6 Ironman will also count towards this goal.
