State of Run is for and about runners.
Runners are a unique breed that should be celebrated! We come in all shapes and sizes, with varying skill levels, dreams and goals. Some of us run for fitness, while others run for the spirit of competition. Some of us run to cope with the events going on in our lives, while others run from them. Whatever your reason for running, we’re thankful that you found your way to StateOfRun.com!
