MARK ECKELS of Boyd & Jenerette in Jacksonville completed the Honolulu Marathon in Hawaii in December. When he crossed the finish line, Eckels achieved his 2003 goal to successfully run a marathon in all 50 states. “It has been an incredible experience, traveling to every state,” Eckels said. “Most people do not visit all 50 states, let alone run a marathon in them. Along the way, you see some amazing sites and meet incredible people.” Eckels has completed over 75 marathons in total. He is now working on his related goal of running a marathon on all seven continents. He completed the Antarctica Marathon in March 2017, and has future plans for the two remaining continents of Africa and Australia.
