Welcome!  This blog documents my journey to run a marathon in each of the 50 states.  I share race recaps and reviews, thoughts on products and workouts, training and nutrition tips, and more.

Opinions expressed on this blog are my own based on my own experiences and sometimes things I read on the internet or heard on a podcast.  I am not a doctor, a certified trainer, a physical therapist, or a nutritionist.  I try to give my most candid thoughts in reviews and recaps, but keep in mind that these are just my impressions and reflect my personal preferences. Whether a race or a product is my favorite, or not so much, I am so grateful to the running community, volunteers, and race directors for this sport.
