Marathon Junkie Takes the Win in All 50 States

If you read our blog (hi mom!) you may be familiar with Chuck Engle.  If not, here are some quick stats on the man they call The Marathon Junkie:

-          44 marathons in 2011 (so far)

-          33 wins in 2011

-          44 career course records

In 2011 Chuck also competed in the London Marathon then hopped a flight back to the States to compete in the Boston Marathon – all in less than 24 hours.  Other than achieving Prestigelitexpertopflight status on all major air carriers, Chuck also achieved a career goal this year by completing his quest of winning a marathon in all 50 states.  His victory at the Louisiana Trails marathon, below, was the final piece of the puzzle, completing a gold medal US map. 


50 wins in 50 states - awesome!

Congrats, Chuck on reaching this monumental goal (50 states, really?!) and we are looking forward to seeing what you get up to in 2012.
