#June1-30Challenge Day 26: Marathon

Day 26 Marathon
June 26, 2016. Marathons are being held today in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; Santa Cruz, California; Lubec, Maine; and Arlington, Virginia. The race in Arlington is indoors.
A marathon is 26.2 miles. Marathoners don’t start out running 26.2 miles! They start small and train for it. They work hard to reach that distance.
Tell us about something you worked for. Something you thought you might never accomplish, but you did.

On the Edge: US

In 2014, I did a solo drive, circumnavigating the contiguous 48 US states on US highways and Interstates as close to the perimeter as possible. 31 states, 32 driving days, 12772 miles.
Most memorable roads?
US1 Homestead > Key West, Florida (both directions)
US2 in the High Plains of North Dakota and Montana.

I’ve shown the first batch of art derived from the trip twice:
June – July 2014, TAG Gallery, Santa Monica, CA
February 2015, Palm Springs Fine Art Fair

Blog (of sorts) for the trip
