The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Suzy Seely Becomes Second Woman to Run Marathon in All 50 States Sub-4 Hours

Houston marathoner Suzy Seely recently became the second woman to run a sub-4 hour marathon in all 50 states.

She finished the Casper Marathon in Wyoming to reach 50 states but had to go back to New York to run a sub-4 hour marathon there to reach the historic milestone.  Seely had run and finished the ING New York City Marathon there back in 1997 but it took her over 4 hours. She ran the marathon that day with her daughter.

How she became interested in running a marathon in all 50 United States:

Seeley, who was named an “outstanding marathoner” in 2005 by, has now run 161 marathons. She undertook the 50-state effort at the urging of Steve and Paula Boone, the Humble couple who founded the 50 States Marathon Club (website). But it wasn’t until Seeley had completed more than 30 that she started to take it seriously.

So on Sunday, Suzy ran the Wineglass Marathon in Corning, NY in 3:22:16 to reach the sub-4 hour, 50 state feat.

Suzy is now part of the prestigious 50Sub4 Marathon Club (website).

Seely’s PR is a 3:14:52 at the 2006 Austin Marathon.

Congrats to Suzy on an amazing accomplishment.
