With the right foundation and training it should not be a problem. I have been averaging a HM every 4 weeks for a while now and even did 2 within 6 days of each other. As I become more proficient I am finding it is easier to add more and more runs physically - then comes the fun of finding the funds for travel and getting all the logistics down etc LOL. Good luck!

Have the StL RnR HM this weekend, then will do St. Jude's Memphis 5 weeks after. I don't see that as a problem. You may need to scale back and not push too hard, but you are definitely ready to do the distance.

I did my first HM at the Sacto Urban Cow on October 7th. It was a great race and I finished in 2:17 without any injuries or setbacks. I'm seriously thinking about doing the Davis Turkey Trot HM on November 17th. This will give me about 6 weeks between races. I took about 10 days of recovery after the Urban Cow and will now start slowly ramping up the miles again.
