About Us

Welcome to The Shoes Run 50!  I am Mrs. Shoe and I am a runner.  I married Mr. Shoe in November 2013.  Together we are planning to run a race in each state before our 50th anniversary.  This plan started out with a pretty innocent question.

"Can we run a 5k while we are on our honeymoon?"

Fortunately, I was able to convince the future Mr. Shoe that this was a great plan and definitely something that all normal couples do while honeymooning.  Okay, so maybe that second part isn't quite true.  But, for a girl who loves running, it seemed like the perfect addition to two weeks in Hawaii. It was Mr. Shoe who suggested that we take it one step further and try to run a race in every single state by the time we celebrate our 50th anniversary.
