Completed my first half marathon this weekend, and placed fourth in my age group! I had a much slower time than I was expecting, however it was soo much hotter outside than it’s been all summer, and all of the runners were suffering on account of dehydration and blazing sunshine. All in all it was a good experience, and I would love to give it another shot sometime, maybe on a different course where there were miles of up hills (literally).

Just signed up for a half marathon in August!! Time to amp up my training! I’ve been training all semester, so now I just have to make sure that I don’t get any stress injuries, and that I keep it up! I’m excited because I’ve never been in better shape, so I think I could actually get a pretty good time! The fastest pacer they have for the race is targeting a 1:40:00, and the pace I’ve been running should put me in under that, so I’ll have to make sure and keep ahead of the pacer. I wish there was a pacer for 1:35:00, or faster so I could know where I’m at, but I’ll figure it out. Any advice on training for a half marathon?
