Lauren, saw your post on the 1/2 marathoners team. Welcome! You mentioned you are looking for tips on training/doing a 1/2 marathon. I have a whole blog series on "surviving the race" that goes from what to wear to what to do after the race. Check them out, maybe you can get some ideas. I'm a 1/2-aholic and am doing #30 in a few weeks, plus I have trained/coached others so I do have a little experience. If you have questions just ask, I've either heard or asked them all.
