A Kansas couple is taking a big accomplishment in stride — they've gone the distance and completed marathons in all 50 states.

Marla and Brad Rhoden have crossed more than 100 marathon finish lines each over the years. Marla ran her first marathon in 1983; Brad ran his first in 1987.

And a few years ago, they decided to log a marathon in every state.

"Especially with last year, all the issues that came up. I had some health issues and the pandemic and I honestly didn't know if I'd be able to do it, but it was motivation to get out and keep going," Marla Rhoden told WIBW-TV. "So, the fact that we were able to do it means a lot."
