50 States Challenge


Follow me as I run a half marathon in each state before my 40th birthday (January 2023).  For more information on this challenge and why I am doing it, click here.  I have decided to include the Half I ran during my Half Ironman and am going to count a marathon in a state as well.  After all, it's my challenge so I get to makeup the rules!

I'll keep this updated with each state and race as they are scheduled and completed.  Races are listed in the order completed.  Race recaps can be found here (sorted by year, newest at top, oldest at bottom).
