When running a marathon, it’s not always about the time, it comes down to numbers: 26.2 miles, 138,435 feet or 1,661,220 inches. No matter how you break it down, it’s an impressive distance.Steve Hughes, 65, will be running in the Sedona Marathon Saturday, Feb. 1. He is part of a select group of individuals by competing in a marathon in all 50 states, not only once, but four times since 2009.

But for two competitors in the Saturday, Feb. 1, Sedona Marathon, that distance has become somewhat customary. At age 65, Steve Hughes will be accomplishing something few can say they’ve done — compete in a marathon in all 50 states not once but four times. And for Kathy Lein, she, too, is accomplishing her goal of joining the 50 in 50 club just in time for her 50th birthday in March.

For Hughes, who splits his year between Chicago and Little Rock, Ark., being a marathoner has been both a struggle and rewarding.

For the full story, see the Wednesday, Jan. 29, edition of the Sedona Red Rock News.
