SO. MUCH. Perhaps I should explain. For the past week and a half of taper, ... Read on »
Marathon Training Begins & Runner’s World Half by RoadJane Posted Tue 16 Oct 2012 12:20pm Today is the official beginning of what I’m sure will be a whirlwind journey towards becoming a full marathoner. I still can’t quite grasp that my first half marathon was in 2011. I still can’t believe I’ve done 7 of them so far. It hasn’t exactly sunk in that I’m going to be running 26.2 miles in February, only 4 months from now, and the same mo ... Read on »

Boston Marathon...And The Countdown Begins by Chronic Runner Posted Mon 26 Mar 2012 11:26am Three weeks from right now, right now, I will be running my first Boston Marathon. And this week isn't even much of a taper. I have a half marathon on Sunday with some extra miles tacked on for good measure, and my weekly mileage will still be reasonable.

My half marathon training begins by Kiley M. Posted Mon 03 Jun 2013 1:49pm Today is the day my half marathon training officially begins. Kinda nice my knee only needed the month off from running to heal (sorry to those of you with injuries, it sucks, I know!). This week I’m going to keep my runs easy, trying to keep my heart rate at less than 135 bpm or so. Otherwise, I’m following this plan for the most part. I’m pro ... Read on »
