The #T1Determined Run Across America
The Plan: Run Across America -- Solo.
If all goes well, I hope to head east from California in 2020 towards the East Coast -- a total of about 3000 miles.
Only approximately 300 people in the world have run across the continental US the last 100 years.
We're still determining whether we'll start from Tandem and Dexcom HQ in San Diego and run to Washington DC -- in a year when access to health insurance will be on many people's minds -- or attempt the first EVER solo run from Disneyland to Disneyworld.
Either way, our plan right now is to take the "Southern route" -- that is, from Southern California through Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. After spending almost 30 years in Texas, I'm more comfortable tackling heat than I am mountains and snow!
The rest we'll know some time after we finish the Texas run. Stay tuned!
I'll update the details once I get a more detailed version of this tentative route lined up.
