Join in local running fanatic Dan Dominie’s historic and adventurous self-challenge of endurance running across New York State, not once but twice. Share in Dan’s spiritually liberating personal experiences, twenty-five years in the making. These began in 1992 when he was 28 and ran solo across the state, west to east, covering 283 miles in 6 days. On that run, he was supported by family crew. Then in 2017 at age 53, this time without support, he ran down the state, north to south, covering 273 miles in 8 days. This unusual endurance self-challenge was notable even in today’s crowded running world of ultrarunning as well as trending adventure and FKTs (fastest known time) events. In exploring the lore of long distance running beyond the ordinary, Dan shares how personal life experiences in family, work, play, and beyond have guided him as he twice turned his dreams of running across the State into reality. Still dreaming, the former farmer, jail warden, and now nurses’ aide hopes to make his next run across the entire United States.
