About the Author

Running with Miles is all about a fusion of running and travel. The result is helping you run more races in more places for less. 

Welcome to Running with Miles! I started this blog in December of 2011 to be able to share a little of of what I have learned over the years with regards to travel and how you can do it on the cheap. I have combined this knowledge many times to assist another interest of mine – running! I know I don’t know everything about running or traveling, but I know I can help you run your dream destination!

headshot3-14In 2009, I ran 5 solo marathon distances on 5 continents in 5 days. I was able to run in Sydney, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, London, and Cairo and fly 42,000 miles in the process for $2,800. I learned a LOT of great things in the planning and executing of that expedition that I still use today. I have also been able to run races in different places around the US that I never would have been able to run had it not been for travel deals.
In 2015, I ran 6 marathon discounts on 6 continents in 4 days and 21 hours. I started in Thessaloniki (Greece), Cairo (Egypt), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Sydney (Australia), Santiago (Chile), and Washington, DC. I flew all of this using miles and points in business and first class. It cost me only $250 out of pocket for the tickets!

Thanks to miles and points, I and my family have been able to travel all over the world and stay in some pretty amazing places – for less than the cost of a regular, domestic economy ticket! This website will help you do the same!

I have run 51 marathons or ultramarathons over the last 9 years (as well as a number of smaller races).  I have now run marathons in 13 states + DC and a few countries (Israel, UAE, Iceland).  I have visited over 35 countries and routinely help people with information regarding entry procedures in different countries, travel tips, lodging in foreign countries, etc.I am looking forward to using this blog as a way to reach out and help even more people. I also love to help people get started running and am a USATF Level 1 Certified Running Coach. I do not have all the answers when it comes to running and travel, but I am eager to share with others what I do know and hope that it helps you on some level.

Thanks!

Charlie
