50 By 50 Challenge

At the beginning of 2013, I established running goals for myself, both short-term and long-term.  My ultimate long term goal is to run a half marathon in all 50 states of our United States.   To start this mission, and start accomplishing this goal I had to come up with a name.  I have decided to call my mission:  50 By 50 Challenge.  My goal will be to run a half marathon in all 50 states before I turn 50 years old.  This gives me 10 years to complete this task.

  2. Both of your goals are excellent — I especially like the sub-2 addendum. There are lots of people who are attempting the 50-states challenge, but few of them throw down time commitments as well. You have great races ahead of you. Flying Pig, Indy and the Disneyland 1/2 are all pretty fantastic runs. Best of luck!
