Senior Citizen Has Incredible Goal To Run A Marathon In All 50 States, Goes The Distance

John Maultsby is a 73-year-old Nevada man who dreamt of running marathons in all 50 states. What makes it even more remarkable is he started after the age of 60. He ran eight marathons this year alone.

He finally reached his goal as he crossed his finish line on Sunday in a popular New Hampshire race. He completed the Anthem Manchester City Marathon in four hours, nine minutes, 15 seconds.

Footage shows him finishing and receiving support from his family, wife and mother. Maultsby said he knows there are runners who've reached that goal a lot quicker, but he doesn't know too many who started when they were in their 60s.

Maultsby lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he has worked as a table games supervisor at the MGM Grand Las Vegas since 1993. Now that he's reached his goal, he looks forward to getting some rest and relaxation.
