Kathy Stickney ’86 had a goal: Run 26.2 miles in every one of the 50 states. Last October, she attained that goal, finishing the LOCO Marathon in Newmarket, New Hampshire, just a town over from where it all began.

Stickney, who is also an Oyster River High School graduate, was connected to UNH even before her undergraduate years; her father, chemistry professor James Weber, was on the faculty.

She and husband Daniel ’88 live in Indiana, where she is a chemistry professor at the University of Indianapolis. Now part of an elite group of runners who have achieved the feat of a marathon in every state, she says she plans to go back to 12 of those states and aim for even better running times.
