BANGOR — Imagine running a marathon in every state in America.
Mary Dysart Hartt said the idea came to her on her 50th birthday in Arizona while running a marathon with her husband.
“I was running in Las Vegas for my 50th birthday. I met a couple of guys who had shirts on that said they ran one in every state. By the time I was at the end of the marathon, it was my new goal,” she said.
So far, Hartt said she’s run 48 marathons, including running the Boston Marathon twice.
She hopes to complete the rest by September.
