    1. Hey Amber! Corn to Run was a small race that took place in a corn field! It was really fun but also hard to do because the ground was covered in large piece of corn stalks so it was a challenge. I’ll probably start up a race bucket list so hopefully that will give you some suggestions!

  1. I want to start training for my first half marathon, the farthest I have ever run is 6.5 miles. Any tips or good training plans? Thanks!!!! Love this post, what an awesome goal

  2. I love this as well! I definitely don’t think I could run in every state but I’d love to visit every state. Let me know if you come to Kentucky! we have tons of great races (ok like 5) in March & April.

  3. You should definitely come to Illinois next April and run the Abe Lincoln half marathon in Springfield! It is a beautiful route and a great place to run! Hope you come here! 🙂

  4. I saw you did the Her Tern Half in Alaska last year, that’s the race I’m doing this summer! Just stopping by to see how you’re doing and to congratulate you on so many cool races you’ve added so far! I switched up the #RUN50 page a little so added you back on my list 🙂

  5. I wish you luck! How are things going so far? I want to do this with my goal destination and as a gift to myself a 10K in Athens Greece. So excited! C

  6. I notice you haven’t visit Virginia and of course there lots of races in the state but we are very proud of the Blue Ridge Marathon and Half Marathon in Roanoke, VA, it is billed as the toughest Road race in America. So if you interested pay us a visit. http://www.blueridgemarathon.com
