    Hi, I wonder if I could follow the training for the 1/2 marathon. I'm currently in Spain. I've so far booked 2 races in the past but failed to turn up to any of them because I didn't keep up the training. However, if a you are doing it, and are blogging what your progress is for the weeks ahead, I would like to join you on the training (well in a virtual way); and eventually book myself to do another race.

    Go Leah! I did my first 1/2 marathon last year but wasn't able to properly train due to an inflammation of a hamstring or insertion site. But I still did it! And it was awesome. It was in Lake Placid NY and my husband, daughter, son and sister did it as well. This year I am TRYING to get my 5 K under 30 minutes. I don't know if I can do it but I'm going to continue to try. I am not having any pain issues so I think for now it is the way to go and as I get stronger maybe add in some distance again. (but I am a lot older than you)
Good luck! emoticon

  Amazing job Leah emoticon
Last year, i've started to run everyday then stop emoticon
My everyday busy life makes it so hard to even start emoticon
and with that I've gained so much weight.
I truly want to start again and the reason why is,
I have asthma and I want to build a strong breathing lung the natural way!

  That was a great video blog. You can count me in even though I wouldn't be able to be there for the half marathon. I could make my own route or do it on the treadmill the day of the race so I was still doing it with you. If that's a cool alternative with you all, I think that would be great motivation to take up running again.

    Good for motivation. I can't run yet, because I am still recuperating from open-heart surgery. I am walking almost everyday now and soon I hope I will be able to jog. Your video renewed my enthusiasm. Thank you.

    So count me in as one of the crazies who's in! I just finished W3D1 of C25K, I'm planning on running my first official 5K on 7/28, so I'm as newbie as you. I've no desire to run a marathon, I've always told my husband a half marathon is lofty enough for my ambitions emoticon One that's a year away will be perfect!

    Leah (did I spell your name correctly?), you are a cute mess! I am Jan, your 70 year old, previously inactive (for a looong time), fan of yours. I am so very proud of you, dear. I live in Virginia, Southwest Virginia to be exact. I'm very encouraged by your enthusiasm and courage, so I will train with you and all the other folks who follow your blog and wish to participate with you. Of course, I won't be running any mini-marathon at my age, but I WILL walk, increasing my distance from time to time. Then I will walk/jog relatively short distances and go from there. My goal (as a 70 year old) will be to run the distance of an average city block. Keep in mind that I have to guess that distance, because I live in a quasi-rural area. All right, I'm on-board!

    You can definitely do this. You are very brave to branch out and try new things. I hope to also try "new" things one day soon. With you for inspiration I'm sure that I'll make it. It's so nice to have people that share the same goals.

    I'm on board to help you train. When is this this HM and the name of it? Probably won't make it out there, live in Alberta, Canada but if I'm ever in your area you can bet I'll contact you and we'll go for a run.

Great idea and can't wait to start.
