50 Bibs in 50 States
On May 6th 2012 I, Eric Rutin, announced I would begin a quest of epic proportions – running a race in every state in the Union. Not just marathons, but any race, any format, essentially anything with a bib. I have given this adventure the clever moniker of 50 Bibs in 50 States.
My selection process for deciding what race to participate in doesn’t really have any special considerations. It may be for a sentimental reason, maybe for the potential of a PR, it could be because the race has a cool format or theme, hell it might even be as dramatic as I need to run a race in some state and I happen to be traveling there , but regardless of the selection criteria each state by the conclusion of this odyssey I will have a bib from every state.
And yes, I am implying I am of the same spirit as my favorite literary character, Odysseus.
