The project is to run a race in every state in the United States. I’m sure this has been done, in fact, I believe that someone did all 50 states in 50 days. Unfortunately, I don’t have the energy or the ability to do that. This project may take me a couple of years, and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I have decided to start the project around my 25th birthday because that seems like a good age to do a milestone project like this. The reason? I really enjoy running and I enjoy traveling. This idea was a way to combine the two and also keep me active and to give me a goal – something to look forward to. I wanted to make it into a blog to document the project for myself, family, and friends and potentially have the ability to inspire others to run or start their own projects. What makes my goal and my Racing the States different than anyone else is that I want to do a race in each state where the proceeds go to a good cause.
