Half Marathon

I just registered for my first half marathon (13.1 miles)!

The Rock and Roll marathon series is coming to Savannah next year on November 5, 2011. I figure that should be more than enough time to prepare myself and possibly get a decent time. On the registration, it asked you to put in your estimated finish time... hah! I don't know! I put in 2 hours and 30 minutes, based on previous race times. My goal is to NOT exceed that time! Hopefully I'll fall somewhere in between 2 and 2.5 hours. I've done a 10K in a little over an hour (included a bridge in it), but I'm thinking my pace will fluctuate... and I'll probably hit a wall at some point, but then ideally get a second wind near the end of it! Maybe I will surprise myself!

Now to find the time to train!

I'm hoping that by next Spring I'll be in good enough shape to start running. I really wanna do a 5k by April or something. good luck with your training!

That is awesome! I would love to do a half marathon but I'm too chicken to sign up! If you hurry up and move up here so I have a guaranteed training partner then I'll do it! Hurrrrry!
