Set a very realistic goal to finish in 2:30. Beat my goal time by over a minute. Totally worth it.

How I did it: One state at a time. Be sure and go big for the places you really want to see. Try and link the smaller states together when you can. You can see a lot of states at one time if you plan it right. Long road trips are the most fun but flying in was needed to do most of them for me. Read how I did it…
How I did it: Carried my camera in my bag or car everywhere I went for an entire year. It became just as important as carrying my wallet. When you think that you just can't go on another day, think how hard it would be to start over. Think of all the great memories you can look back on to commerate that year. I started mine on my 35th birthday which gave me a goal. Doing it at 36 just doesn't seem as fun does it? Read how I did it…
Running the half at the Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa, OK on the 18th of November.
Stepped off the cruise ship gangway and jumped on to the docks at Ketchikan, AK and shouted the above word. DONE! Then I celebrated by downing all you can eat crabs at the George Inlet Lodge.
Alaska is known as “The Last Frontier” and for me it truly was. The inside passage is amazing and the glaciers of Glacier Bay and College Fjord are a must see in your lifetime.
This goal is one of the best things I have ever done. And I am proud to say I have completed it. Hmmm, now what.
