Profile - Finish for a Guinness 2014 I am Paul, a Rhode Islander who is running a 5k (or more) and raise money for a charity in all 50 states. Come join me on my journey. I am documenting this journey through blog posts as well as the Journey of the Rhode Runner podcast.

In addition to the running journey, I received a Masters Degree in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University in October 2022, and am in the process of writing a memoir series of 5 books covering my 50-state journey.

I began writing short stories when I was 10 years old. Unfortunately, by the time I was a teenager, I fell away from writing stories. However, I reignited my passion for writing in the year 2010 when I started a blog called Return to the ’80s. The blog is still going strong, and has also become a podcast.

Life is short. So, let’s make the most of it, and bring some much needed joy to the world.
