What about setting a walk/run goal for yourself first as a way to work up to the distance? And if possible, find a running buddy or group.

Take your time. If 13.1 is not your distance, you'll find out. But stick with your training.

My father is one of my heros and I watched him transition to long distance running (he is an ultra marathoner). I use his inspiration and his drive to help me as I am transitioning myself.

Can you do the same? People ask him why and he says why not? It's a personal race against oneself and something not many people can and are willing to do. I am not trying to preach but these thoughts are every part of my running no matter the distance and maybe they can do something like that for you.

Enjoy your challenge and good luck.

New to the team, but not to my goal.

I'm a 5K runner who truly wants to run a half marathon some day. At the moment my biggest concerns are that I get bored with running and my stamina in training lasts about 4 miles. I am working up more, but I'm early yet in the training.
