Katie Visco is attempting to be the youngest woman to run across the USA. She started in Boston in late March and hopes to reach San Diego before Christmas. On May 16, Katie passed through State College with an escort from the Nittany Valley Runnig Club. I took some pictures, which are in this album on Facebook.
You can read more about Katie and her trip at her web site: http://www.paveyourlane.com/. There's a post in her blog there with her impressions of State College and the NVRC. And Tara Murray summarizes the recent spate of blog posts on Katie's run here.
