Hi. I don't know if you are planning a pure run or a run/walk combo. For me, the turning point was completing an 11 mile run/walk as part of my training. I finished feeling alive, which let me know I can complete the 13.1 miles without a problem. Now I am working on getting leaner and stronger before my race in Feb.
Thank you all for the inspiration. Run 5 miles today, plan on running 3 tomorrow and walking with my mother on Christmas Day. I know I can do it I guess I am just a little nervous about the distance. Thank you again.
Welcome, there is lots of good advice on HM training and racing in the threads here. Enjoy your journey!
