Thanks for your comments! Training for a half was definitely good motivation for me. It is nice to know that I don't have to kill myself off trying to run too fast. I am getting more comfortable with sticking to my pace and letting the speedsters go on by. :)

Good video! I would agree "all things in moderation", but I think the challenge of running a marathon or half-marathon is not a bad thing - just as long as it isn't overdone. Challenges can be good motivators to keep us going. (I think it is interesting where he talks about slowly down, and running at a certain pace - in that everyone is different and a 9:00 minute/mile might be very slow for some runners - but to me it is a faster run.)

Thanks for sharing!!

I thought this was an interesting TED talk on the effects of extreme endurance exercise. It always come down to balance and moderation.

What are your thoughts?
