Race All 50

I’ve been to 46 out of 50 states. Many of those states I’ve also bicycled in or through. So what’s next? Race All 50!

I’m loosely defining a “race” as any timed running event. This will generally mean anything 5K or longer, though on occasion I have heard about timed mile events, and so one of those would count too. (However, I wouldn’t count the more typical one mile “fun run/walk” type of events.)

Here’s my progress so far:

I certainly have a long way to go. However, my job takes me on short trips to out of the way places in the US. With proper planning and the popularity of the 5K distance, I should be able to tack on races to the beginning or end of business trips. So long as I don’t have to go to North Dakota in the middle of winter.

Completed states so far:

  1. California: Angels 5K, April 2014
  2. Massachusetts: Norwood Turkey Trot, November 2014

Thanks to the Run With Jess blog for the idea!
