It's about a goal
Dr. Troy Ivey, co-director of Jump Right In and Run, is well on his way to meeting his personal goal of running 50 marathons - one in each state - before he turns 50. Dr. Ivey started his "50 by 50" journey when he was 43. He recently turned 48 and has completed marathons in 36 states.
Dr. Ivey's most recent race was in Anchorage, Ala. on Aug. 21. Next up is a marathon in Colorado Springs, Colo., in September. He plans to do back-to-back marathons on Saturday, Oct. 15, in Connecticut and Sunday, Oct. 16, in Rhode Island. He will finish 2011 with marathons in Kansas and Las Vegas, Nev.
It's about lifestyle
Dr. Brian Lenzmeier, associate professor of biology at Buena Vista University, set a goal to run the Jump Right In and Run half-marathon in under 100 minutes. Read his interview about running and inspiration.
