Running a Marathon In All 50 States with Michele Heller (#32)

Updated: Jan 30, 2023

Many runners have a goal of running a marathon in all 50 states. In today’s conversation I chatted with Michele Heller who is on a quest to reach that goal. Along with running a marathon in all 50 states, Michele also wants to run all 6 world major marathons.

She currently has finished 4 of the majors and a marathon in 10 states with number 11 right around the corner. Being employed full time in the finance industry while also raising a 5-year-old can make finding the time to train difficult at times. The most important thing to her is being present and spending time with her son so early morning running while he is sleeping has become her norm. Michele shares her experiences in balancing life and training in her blog:

Episode Highlights:

  • What was the inspiration behind Michele’s goal to run a marathon in every single state

  • How Michele plans her schedule, to ensure she is being active, and at the same time being present with her family

  • We talk about Michele’s blog- and why her personal experience as a young mom inspired her to start this blog, and a few of her favourite running topics to write about
