12: John Horton - 50 States of Marathons starting at age 60

Mile After Mile Podcast
Episode artwork

Running a marathon is a pretty common life goal. Running a marathon in all 50 states is a pretty common goal among those of us who love to run marathons. What makes John's story a little different is that he started his journey to run a marathon in all 50 states when he was 60 years old.

In this interview John Horton and I talk about how he got started on this goal. What races he loved (Big Sur Marathon is one)and which was the hardest (Bataan Death Marathon). We talk about family and the joy of traveling around to beautiful places in the USA.

John has a vibrant community of friends that he runs with and he's actively involved in charitable organizations like the Lions Club and Team in Training. We talk about how to avoid injury while running so many marathons.

John Horton's favorite runner is Steve Prefontaine and he planned to complete his 50 state journey in Oregon at Hayward Field. Listen as he tells the story of finishing this marathon - it's a great story.

John Horton challenges himself (and us) to make an adventure every year. Find out what his next challenge is ... it's a big one.

John Horton Conway: The Seductive Mathematician

Modern Notion

Read more

On today’s episode of Modern Notion Daily, our guest is Siobhan Roberts, author of Genius at Play: The Curious Mind of John Horton Conway (Bloomsbury USA, July 2015). Roberts spent seven years writing this biography of one of the most famous contemporary mathematicians and creator of the Game of Life. The magnitude of Conway’s genius is matched only by his playfulness and charisma; Roberts even describes him as “seductive.” But that intensity has a dark side, too.
