Hello! My name is Stefanie, and I am a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, coffee snob, and foodie with a lifelong passion for travel and running. I have been a runner and endurance athlete for the past 20+ years, and my goal to run a half marathon in all 50 U.S. states came to fruition when the world came to a screeching halt in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. My commitment to never take my good health, the ability to travel, or a single moment for granted was reaffirmed, and I became more inspired to invest in things that bring me the most joy.
When I’m not traveling around the country for races, I’m traveling around the globe with my husband, who owns and operates a boutique travel agency specializing in luxury travel to the Caribbean! If you’re just getting started on your own goal of running a half marathon in all 50 states, I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy sharing my adventures! Happy running and safe travels!
