50 States Expedition

Athletic endeavors have always piqued my interest. There is nothing more raw and athletic than summiting a mountain. By its very definition this implies a difficult journey, often on harsh terrain, requiring strength to climb and endurance to persevere. What started with a passion for running and hiking has evolved into a journey to summit all 50 states.

  1. Jeff – it’s been awhile man. Strangely enough I ran into a guy at work the other day who has two states left…he was leaving for Alaska in just a few days…and he has Hawaii saved for last (likely the easiest).

    Hope all is well, site looks great. Stay in touch.

  2. Jeff, that’s an awesome goal. Something to train for and good for the soul. Best of Luck.
