2008 Philly Trifecta
Great report. Thanks for sharing! My first half is a week from today and I'm anticipating the cheers to get me through it. I teared up as you got to the end, b/c I know that will be ME in a week! Congrats!!! You deserve it!

One day at a time
Congratulations! I just signed up for the Maine Coast Half Marathon next September 21. It's all women, except one guy who gets in through a lottery. I'm looking forward to it but terrified at the same time! The farthest I've run at this point is 5.4 miles, so I have a ways to go. I just printed out Hal Higdon's 1/2 Marathon: Novice training plan - it looks good! I wasn't sure how to increase my mileage, but he makes it simple.
You can do it, Theresa!!!
Hal Higdon has a great plan. If you read my blog and past posts...you'll see that due to an injury late in my training, I missed some key long runs. Just remain flexible and don't increase mileage too quickly. You have plenty of time to build up milage.
The other thing I find humorous is that I can't seem to stop TALKING about running. I'm glad my non-running friends are tolerant of that. Maybe I will convince one or two of them to try running themselves.
