States Conquered

One of my fitness goals as a multisport athlete is to complete an event in each of the 50 US states.  Anything from a charity bike ride to a 5K road race counts.  I'll see how many adventures I can have along the way.  Below is a list of the states completed with the 1st event that I did in that state plus a brief description.
