The youngest sibling in my family is Salem. He’s the father of 4, in an MBA program that finishes up this spring, and an entrepreneur through and through. His new creation: A National Park Race Series!

Each race is attached to a National Park. So you can run your heart out in a half-marathon, then fill your soul sight-seeing in the most breathtaking parks in the country. I think it’s such a fun idea! The race you’re training so hard for can become a vacation the whole family will look forward to.

Registration for the Zion Half Marathon opened on Thanksgiving. The Grand Canyon Half, Rocky Mountain Half, and Lake Powell Half will be announced shortly. I LOVE this video he made about the race:

I grew up near National Parks and have a real soft spot for them. I’m kind of a National Park junkie! Personally, I’m partial to Zion, Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain. Do you have a favorite?

P.S. — If you attended Alt Summit last January, you might have met Salem. He was the tall guy making shave ice at the Diner en Blanc party.
