To achieve all that is possible, we must attempt the impossible. To be all that we can be, we must dream of being more.

I will be running my 1st half on November 21. I am excited and scared as the last time I trained for a half I ended up tearing my peroneal tendon in my left foot and ended up with surgery in January

Thanks every one for the support. I will start my training this week. I went to a website and printed out the training schedule. That gave me a great peace of mind! I just got to see myself as an athlete! ;-)

Great job committing to one. Signing up makes it so real. I find that it's my biggest motivation to exercise. Next, tell everyone your doing it and they will help hold you accountable. Have fun!

Good luck to you on running your 1st HM this Oct! I would just advise that you take it slowly. It's more important that you increase your mileage gradually than working on speed. You can do it!!

Okay what you need to do now, is do research on half marathon training plans....there are tons and depending on you and only you - you can decide which one you like - then proceed to do that.
Examples are : Runnersworld.com smart coach, Jeff Galloway, John Bingham, Hal Higdon, and so many others.

Hello everyone,

I have signed up to run a half marathon in October. And I am not a runner YET!! I signed up as a way to push myself into shape, besides the supporting a good cause part. But I have no idea in how to train for that, I guess i just got to run! I ran a little over 3 miles the other day I was really proud of myself, but that kinda scared me, because it took me a long time for that and I have committed to run for 13 miles. WOW "what was I thinking?!"
