So, this is what my 50 states map looks like right now…
This is what my map will look like at the end of 2013 if all of my crazy plans fall into place…
Yes, there are 10 states in red!
The stars are trying to align for me. I’ve already signed up for and am midway through training for the five half marathons in five days that will net me Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, and Colorado. Rhode Island and Connecticut are obliging me by putting back to back half marathons in October on a weekend that is likely to be a long weekend for my children. Now I’m just waiting for North Dakota to fall into place with South Dakota for back to back halves in August, when I’m already in that area.
Seriously, people, it’s like I’m SUPPOSED to do this. And if you are adding, you’ll notice that’s 9 half marathons. Given that I’m already planning one in April in NC and one in May in MD and umm, yeah, that’s 11 half marathons in 1013.
Shoot, if I’m going to do 11, I might as well do 13.
Like I said, it’s a special kind of crazy.

I love it! We only have 9 provinces. I’ve run in all but maybe I must do them all in one year. Mmm…what distance in each… You have put some good thoughts in my head 🙂
You should check out Love the Half, if you haven’t already. You can get swag for completing a certain number of halfs.
You got this!!! What’s another couple of half marathons this year? Too funny!!!
Love what you’ve done with THE map!! I’m so excited for 2013, I hope everything continues to come together.
Wow!! I’m in North Dakota, so I hope it all works out for that state! I’m doing the 13 in 2013 too, and it is making this year so fun. 🙂
That is AWESOME!! And it definitely looks like 2014 should be the year of the South, right? Come on down here to LA and we can do a half together (I’m tackling the 10K distance for 2013 and plan to attach the half in 2014)
The eight year old girl in me wants to finish colouring in the map for you.
It’s going to be a hectic, crazy year for you. But won’t you have knocked off a big chunk of the country when it’s over?!!
What an awesome year you’re going to have…you are one strong and fit woman!! 🙂
You are definitely going to have a busy year, but it looks AWESOME! 🙂
CRAZY!!! I cant wait to hear about the 5 in 5 days. That one really intrigues me!!
Which one are you doing in MD?
Awesome plan! Which one are you running in ND? I’ll be there in May for the Fargo Full.
That’s awesome! I think you should just go for 13 half marathons in 2013 because at this point, what’s two more?!
that one crazy weekend…ohhhh baby!!! I agree with Suzanne too 🙂
Love the map!! I think you should go for the 13 – you can so pull it off! We gotta get MA on your list 🙂
You are amazing! It’s awesome to see your progress and how much more of that map you’ll fill in this year.
