Are you in?
Rick is registered for the full marathon. I am doing the half marathon. There is also a 5K.
You have until March 11 to sign up and then the price increases.
Find out more here.
So, 12 week training starts on March 21. I use this training schedule. It worked great for me last year. You can choose between novice, intermediate, advanced or walk. I chose intermediate last year even though it was my first half marathon. And I started at week 5 or 6 because I had already been running for about 3 weeks (although I was running 3/4 times a week for about 3/4 miles at sea level). But it worked.
AND just so you know. People DO walk a half marathon. or a full marathon. And they do it fast. I know this because I followed a walker for 5 miles down Hobblecreek last summer. The only reason I passed her is because at the 5 mile mark, she stopped at the port-a-potty.
Now, just so we're clear...I'm not recruiting anyone to train with me in that we will be getting up at 6 am for a daily run. However, if we are on the same training schedule, I would love to check on you and you check on me and encourage each other. That's what Amara and I did last spring and it was great. I knew she would call me or email me when she did her run and then I would report on my training run. It was awesome. I am pretty sure I would not have made it without Amara.
So, ask for running shoes for Christmas and let's do this.
