50 States

Okay, so I have a loooooong way to go here… but I'm now MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS OF THE WAY THERE!!!!

But this awesome little tool from Running in the USA will certainly help me color in a bit more of the map!



The fine folks at the Defocus Blog created a very cool "visited states" map, though I have used it for my own devices. I've raced in the blue states ... 38 so far... plus Washington DC! Yes, yes, I know it's not a state... 

And for the first time in a long time, I'll add FIVE NEW STATES before the end of 2022. I've just completed Minnesota, state #38. I am registered for races in four more new states -- they're colored green on the map. It feels very good to be making steps in the right direction. I do still plan on holding Hawaii to the last race, however!
