She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

One day at a time
Thanks for the welcome Sara and Kirsten. It's inspiring to hear you both did half marathons without walking in the same or less time training than I will do.
Sara-I'll start with my arms like you suggested...I know for sure they flap about in front of me and I definitely haven't been holding them at a 90 degree angle...I'll work on that first. Thanks for the stretching advice...I had no idea to warm up first, so I'll give that a go tomorrow.
And yet another question....I think Hal Higdon's training gives you 12 weeks...should I start much earlier and then just repeat the few weeks of it until the race day?
I can't even pretend to understand that I know the difference between the training training pace and race pace.
