Yesterday I had dinner with my friends Nathasha (check out her blog Running the States) and Emily. You probably remember them from my Charleston and Philadelphia Love Run recaps (Rehoboth coming soon). It it always super fun catching up with them – life, work, travel, and of course running! We have some 2017 plans sketched out that I am very excited about, one that hopefully includes a west coast visit. Okay, Jennifer…so how is this related to this post?
PS – Thanks to the Mar for the map hookup!
PPS – Thanks to Kathleen for proofing my map 🙂
One of my lifetime goals is to run a half or full in every state, so a lot of our chit chat revolved around races in different states (Nathasha also has the same goal…hence her blog title). I’ve alluded to it in the past, but never wrote a post about it until now. So far I have run 4 marathons and 25 half marathons, but have only covered 9 states and the District of Columbia (repeat states).
States completed are shaded in blue and states planned for 2016 are shaded in grey. I have a 50 States tab in my header that will keep track of my progress and point to my race recaps (tagging them is a work in progress). I have a wish list spreadsheet, but always interested to hear what others have done and their recommendations.
Do you have any race recommendations? (specially for the states in white)
Do you have the same or similar goal?
