Should I go for 50 marathons in 50 states?

OK. I am 32 now. I’ve got 10 marathons under my belt.

Pittsburgh (PA) – 2001, 2002, 2003
Virginia Beach (VA) – 2004
Houston (TX) – 2005
Tampa (FL) – 2006
Boston (MA)- 2007
Chicago (IL) (including Lakefront marathon) – 2006, 2007 (2)

That makes six states covered.

I will hit Ohio this month for the LCFB Marathon on Feb 17th.
I have St. George, UT planned for Oct.

I will have at least 8 states covered by the end of 2008. Depending on if I go to Boston or not, I may be able to sneak in another midwestern state this summer.

That leaves 42 to go. Hmmm….

Mike and I were talking about this earlier. Definitely go for it. But give yourself some 50 in 50 before you're 50. :)

I, of course, think it is a great idea.
