I get asked a lot “Why do you do this? Why hop a 6 hour flight, drive 7 hours, get nearly no sleep, run a marathon and turn right back around?” I like seeing things and having these experiences. I like the challenge, but more than that, it’s this. If you knew the people I’ve met you’d understand completely.
The Missoula Marathon in Missoula, Montana is a relatively flat race in cool weather. It was Jim Diego’s 50th half marathon state.
