hey Eric and welcome, hope we can help you keep the weight off and get you moving and burning more calories. as for getting faster and running a half, forget about fast and focus on endurance. slow and steady is just as good in my book. The way I see it, 5k are fast and fureious, 10k are fast at a steady pace and halfs are twice the fun. So enjoy your training and use the 10% rule. increase your mileage each week 10% and keep your speed work in the 10%.

I just found sparkpeople a week ago. I just got done losing 30 lbs on the HGC plan and was looking for a way to help keep the weight off. I live in Tucson Arizona. I am glad to have found this forum because this site is so female oriented.
I am going to run a 5k probably in the fall then a 10k. If I can get fast enough I'll try a half marathon. Running for two hours at a time seems a little tedious.
