I am doing my first walking half marathon in four weeks. I found a 12 week walking schedule on-line. My plan is to following the schedule again and walk another half marathon. It's so wonderful to have a goal and accomplish it.

I completely understand your addiction to the half marathon and running. I personally have done about 15 of them and have 2 on the calendar before the end of the year. I have never done a trail one but it may be something that I need to look into.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
I'm Michelle and I ran my first half marathon a little over a year ago when I was 250lbs. Ran my 2nd one this last spring at 230lbs and just ran my first Tail Half marathon earlier this month at 220lbs. Running has become and addiction that I love. I signed up for another regular half marathon for the end of October. The trail half marathon was probably the most psychically and mentally demanding thing I have ever done. I wanted to give up at about mile 4 after I ran up a hill called "the wall" but I was determined to finish no matter how long it took. I hope that starting next May I can run 1 half marathon a month and work from there.
