On September 5, 2020, I bounded down a ski slope called “Caribou” at Hilltop Ski Area in Anchorage, AK to a round of applause compliments of my wife and a few random bystanders. I just completed another Half Marathon. By crossing the 13.1 mile mark that day, my goal of running a Half Marathon in all 50 states was officially complete. What started as an impromptu and random personal goal a few years out of college turned into a massive multi-year commitment. The perspective gained has permanently changed my outlook on life.

I’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes for the last 6 months. I’ve been balancing the responsibilities of working full-time with the full time-esque requirements of planning and coordinating multiple events. I’ve often wondered if all this effort is worth it. Then the reaction to last week’s announcement finally hit and I’m still bursting with excitement.

Streaking. That word has a very different meaning to me these days compared to my college days rummaging around the UNC Charlotte campus. My present day interpretation of streaking is to run at least one mile every single day. This time, fortunately, with clothes on. I’ve been streaking two full years without a single day off. I’ve learned a lot about running, grit, will, and pure love for a hobby turned necessity.
Hi, I’m Cain. I'm 13 years old and I live in Breckenridge, CO. Outside of school, I love to run, Nordic ski, and play soccer. Living in an active "mountain town" like Breck, I get to see so many beautiful outdoor places and get to experience so many different things on a regular basis. It's pretty dang cool.
