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.

Trust the training!

Liz

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.

Did you like training for your shorter distances? Are you forseeing any issues with training or just looking for a little extra motivation to hit the road when needed?

Good luck with your training and looking forward to seeing what you are running.

If you have already made the decision to run a HM, running itself is your inspiration. The rest is simply training for the distance.

Welcome, there is lots of good advice on HM training and racing in the threads here. Enjoy your journey!
