About Running For Status
This is a blog about running marathons all over the world and earning airline and hotel elite status at the same time. There will also be some posts about traveling as I got hooked on traveling after traveling for marathons. Most of my travel is paid for so I earn elite status. I will be using the American Express Blue Cash and Barclay Arrivals card to help offset my travel costs.
My first marathon was Cox Providence Marathon in May 2011 mainly because of a Groupon deal. I have ran 19 marathons in the last three years and the most marathons I’ve done is 9 marathons in a year in 7 different states and 3 different continents. My goal is to run 30 before I turn 30. I am a member of Marathon Maniacs.
My goal is to run a marathon on every continent twice. I accomplished this feat in March 2014 when I finished a marathon on Antarctica. IN between international marathons, I will try to run in a few more states and Canadian provinces.
The hobby I neglected because of my running and traveling is snowboarding. I hope to devote more time for it next winter.
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and currently employed at an engineering firm outside of Boston. I currently reside in Boston.
