I just did it. I signed up for back to back marathons. On Oct. 10 I’ll run the Prairie State Marathon and then I’ll drive up to Wisconsin and run the St. Brons Marathon on the 11th. A little nervous, as 50+ miles in two days will be a big deal for me. I’ve been practicing some back to back long run days, but this will definitely be a challenge. I’m hoping for strong finishes in each race. After I cross the finish line in WI, I’ll have officially made my way through 25 states and be halfway done with running through the US. By the end of 2015, I’ll have 26 states and on track to finish all 50 by the time I’m 40. Pretty exciting!
Now, I need to get through Sunday’s race in Omaha and then I can really focus on these two. Here’s to 4 marathons during September and October!
