Couple to run Lincoln Highway across Ohio

Eric Ebbinger writes that he and his wife Misty are combining their love of history, running, and the spirit to run across Ohio next February. To honor of the legacy of President Lincoln, they will begin in February on his 200th birthday and finish the 240-some miles 5 days later on President’s Day: “What better place to focus a birthday celebration of Lincoln than the engineering marvel which bears his name? … It will not be easy, but it will not be impossible. Ok, to be completely honest, most people think we’re crazy. But the road, the towns, the people, and the legacy of Lincoln will be exemplified in every step.”

To help spread the word about the man, the road, and the run, they’ve launched a website thelincolnrun.com. So far, it has only followed the story of Eric’s running but as November and the anniversary of the Gettysburg address approaches, they will “launch a daily celebration of all things Lincoln.” They will also offer a T-shirt for $20 with a portion going to the Lincoln Highway Association.
