{ 25 Challenge: Half to Run }

I was inspired to intermix my love of running with my love of traveling – therefore deciding to run a half marathon in half the states!  I don’t really have a time goal in mind…I just think it is something fun to strive towards.  And once it’s all added up, that is 327.5 miles across 25 states!

{ Canadian Provinces } 

There are 13 Canadian Provinces.  During my 3 year assignment in this country, I wonder how many provinces I can cross off?  The challenge is on!
