Running America

Updated: Mar 23, 2023

In November 2011 Dave and I ran the Rock'n'Roll San Antonio Half Marathon. It was the first of what was to become our goal of running a half marathon in every state. Now, eleven years later we have 48 states under our belt. This endeavor has taken us to states, cities and locations small and large. Places that we have always wanted to visit and places that we didn't even know existed. It has given us a chance to visit both small town America and the big cities from coast to coast.

The map below displays those states that we have already run by color coding them to show the first 25 states in yellow and the second in blue. Below the map I have listed all of the half marathons that we have completed with a link to bring you straight to their website. I would love to hear from anyone that has already run any of these races or those who have it on their to-do list.
