Running all 50 US States

I’m starting a personal challenge to run at least a half marathon (13.1 miles) in every US state. I hope to complete this challenge before turning 50 on March 11, 2029.

States Ran

Washington D.C. while our nation’s capital, is not a part of any U.S. state and is not one itself. It was the home of my first ever full marathon, The Marine Corps Marathon, in October 2018! I ran it with my beautiful sister, Annie. It opened the door to the rest of this list.

  1. New York – I have run the NYC Full Marathon twice (2019 and 2021). I have also ran the NYC Half (Half Marathon PR at 1:50), Queens Half, Brooklyn Half, and other half marathons around the city.
