It was almost 15 years ago that I decided I needed a change. I was more than 100 pounds overweight and out of shape. A workaholic lawyer, I was more likely to stay up all night at the printer than to walk around the block.
To catch you up, I completed marathon 41, state 41 at Mt. Hood, Oregon in July. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been laser focused on completing all 50 states in spring of 2020 (perhaps “like a cow headed to the barn” is a better description.) But circumstances have led me to embark on the dumbest training plan in the world for my next marathon – the Chicago marathon.
