Dean Karnazes is running a marathon in all 50 states in 50 days. As of yesterday, he has run through half of them. Number 25 was the Baton Rouge Beach Marathon, which he ran in just shy of 4 hours. His race times have varied mostly between 3 hours and 45 minutes to 4 and a half hours. He came down with a cold fairly early into his schedule, but has managed to run through despite it.
He will be arriving in Maine in less than a week. I have not yet figured out if I will be able to get out to see him run or not yet. I have decided not to do the run and will just be waiting for the New York City marathon in November; that will be Dean’s final state.
