I agree with LIZRUNS22. It depends on you and your fitness level? Is the one in May your first half? How far have you run so far? You might want to see what your recovery is like after your first race.

Either way, congratulations on your training and goals! Way to go!

It depends on your fitness level and recovery rate. I have discovered that I bounce back very quickly, but so far Im only following my Half with a 10K 3 weeks later.

Are you doing long runs every other week? How is your body taking it?

If it were me, I would not do 2 HMS so close to each other because I'd want more recovery time.

I'm new to this running thing. I know it is something I want to do and get better at. I am currently registered for a half marathon at the end of may. There is another half marathon at the end of June. Is that too soon to run?
