Read as Sam shares his feelings and experiences while completing the 50 Marathons in 50 States in 50 Days!
Three more marathons down...

I haven't had internet access for the past couple of days, and I wanted to quickly update everyone on our progress.  As planned, we began the Frederick, Maryland marathon a little after midnight on Monday morning.  After finishing the run, the team and I drove to downtown Washington, DC at the White House and I began running the second marathon of the day.  The course consisted of numerous laps around the National Mall in some pretty hot weather.  After an interview with CNN in the afternoon, we drove down to Virginia Beach for the night.


I just completed the Virginia Beach marathon and now we're on to Wilmington, North Carolina.  Sorry I don't have much time, but we have to get on the road again!  I'll write a more detailed update soon.  Thanks for everyone's support!

Sam,

I'm the crazy (and loud) girl that ran part of the Frederick marathon course with you in the weeeeee hours of the morning. I just want to say again how honored I was to meet and run with you. You make all runners proud!

You guys continue to amaze me! What a grueling schedule you have kept the past few days. May God multiply your rest, and give you deep restorative sleep when you can... The final 11 countdown is on! Enjoy, soak it all in, safe steps to you,
You go boy!
