Join Me – Run Your City


I’d love to feature you on the blog as you run your city and thank important people in your life. To join us, check out the requirements directly below and send an email to or leave a comment on this page with the city you’d like to run. Your contribution will be posted when the following things have been completed and received.

Requirements to have your run published:

  • A headshot photo
  • The run must have between five and ten stops along the route. I don’t care how long or short the run is. At each stop, you must capture a picture of the landmark and in the process thank somebody with a thank you sign. You must write about why you stopped where you stopped and why you thanked who you thanked. I would recommend that you bring a running buddy along to take your pictures. It is also encouraged to incorporate a good restaurant in that city, either during or after the run.
  • Within your post, I encourage you to write about a cause that is important to you.
  • You must submit a picture of your route to be included in the post. This can be done with MapMyRun, RunKeeper, Nike + or Google Maps. We want other people to be able to run your route!

Want to contribute? Email with the city you’d like to feature and a bit more about you.

  5. Brooke Sloss says:

    Aug. 13 or 27 in St. Louis looks like it would be a good fit on your calendar.

    1. Steve Good says:

      Brooke, I’m not running in all of these cities. I’m asking others to run their city and contribute to the blog by submitting a blog post of their run. I’d love to run St. Louis (as well as all of these cities) but the reality is I cant!

    I’m in Steve! Love collaborating with another fellow Iowan for a good cause, even if we are on opposing sides of the Cy-Hawk game:) Thanks so much for the invite to include me on this project! Count me in for Manhattan Beach, California! If it needs to be a bigger city, I can do Los Angeles as it is only 15 miles away from my town. Dec 10th if it’s not taken yet!

    1. Steve Good says:

      Yes! Hawkeyes are welcome. Well, in small batches. Kidding. Cedar Rapids is great. I’m originally from Fort Dodge and live in Ames currently. I’ve got you down for December 10. Manhattan Beach is great. Will you shoot me an email at just so I have it? Also, if you could, send me a head shot attached to that email. You’re the man.

  10. David Wyble / Ally Browning says:

    Put David Wyble and Ally Browning down for September 17. We will be running through the glorious metropolis of St. Joseph, Missouri. She has been training for a half marathon and has been running 40-50 miles a week so right now I just want to plan on keeping up with her. We will have more details later.

    1. Steve Good says:

      Alright! You are marked down.

  12. mysticalsocprof says:

    If the run this weekend goes well (I’m doing the Reho run tomorrow during my trip), I might be able to help out with another later in the year. I’m supposed to go to London in October, so that could make for a good pictoral….

    1. Steve Good says:

      My blog is your blog. Feel free to do as many runs as you’d like!

  13. runningsoles says:

    Hi there! can I run the week of December 24th??? let me know!!!

    1. Steve Good says:

      Yes, absolutely! Do me a favor and send me your full name, what city you’d like to run, and a head shot to and we’ll go from there. Glad to have you board!

    2. Michal says:

      Wow, I think you will be a great OB. It seems like you have a real love for children, faimeils, and people in general. Sad to say that those qualities are rare traits in todays world. I believe not just anyone should be in just any job because you could be in a job that you hate and end up making everyone who comes in contact with you at work miserable. You have the joy and care to be great at your job and effect those you will be working around not only by your knowledge , but by your love for what you do.

    I’d like to grab January 21 if possible, representing San Jose, Costa Rica. I’ll be prepping for my first half marathon, the ING Miami on January 27. So I should easily be in ‘full running mode’ during that time frame.
    I’m going to post an article and link on my blog regarding this also. You’ve got a great idea going here.

    1. Steve Good says:

      Awesome! Costa Rica will be wonderful. What’s your full name so I can add it to the calendar? Glad to have you on board and thanks for the kind words.

      1. 10n84w says:

        Christopher Yow
        I’m currently nursing an achilles tendon injury, but fully expect to be back in action well before the date. If for any reason I come to doubt that, I will let you know with as much time as possible so you can fill that time slot.
