5K Down….50 to go?

Finished my first full 5K last night, spurred on by “Thriller” (as I’m running in the dark, in the woods….it was creepy and hilarious) And so I’m ready for the Hero to Heroes run on October 9. As I was looking for other races, I came across a thing on Running in the USA for a “50 states gadget.” It’s meant for marathoners, but I thought why not? So my new goal is a 5K or 10K in every state, at least once per month in the next year! Let’s see….

October 9: Heroes to Hero — NJ
November 14: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Lemon Run — PA
December 18: Lookout Mountain 10k (First 10k!) — TN
January 1: Lowell 1st Run New Year’s Day! — MA
February 12: Cupid’s Chase — NY (Manhattan!)
March 5: Run Through History, Vicksburg National Military Park — MS
April 30: Trail Triple Crown at White Clay Creek (trail run! only doing the 5k though, not the triple crown!) — DE
May: Broad Street?? Will I really be ready to run 10 miles?
September: ING Half Marathon??

Have to find a few more, but that’s a good start. Anybody want to go with me? πŸ™‚
