Mary Kaplan, 74, has ran 5ks in all fifty states. She started running when she was forty-three. She completed all fifty states back in 2008. And now her new challenge is running in all of the 5ks that the Texas counties have to offer. She has ran in one hundred and sixty-eight counties already out of two hundred and fifty-four. Her next county will be Tyler. Mary also has a quilt made out of her t-shirts she's received at all the races. But the shirts can only go on the quilt if she won first place in her age. So Mary does have fifty t-shirts from all fifty states.
