A Year in Sport, A Lifetime in States

date December 19, 2021 location

As 2021 comes to a close, and Strava's "Year in Sport" screenshots have started making rounds on social media feeds, I was thinking about the most significant stats from my own year in running. What I have found most interesting is the number of different states that I have run in this past year. Like many other newly christened remote workers, 2021 had me travelling across the country looking for a new home. The year also marked the return of major road races, and that meant year-round marathon training including days spent on the road. I ran in a total of 9 different states this year: Arizona, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. I thought it would be fun then to consider how many total states I have run in throughout my lifetime of running (according to Strava) and keep an updated list of these jurisdictions, including the most interesting Strava link from each:
