What is the ideal amount of time months or weeks to train for a half marathon?

Posted by Kimberly B

I'm training to run/walk my second half and I see so many different plans out there ranging from 16 weeks to 12 weeks...which is the best? Is there  a best? What training programs have worked for you?

I had a friend who trained for about 12 weeks and he was fine. I think it really depends on the person, their goals, and their current fitness level.  How was your first half marathon? Did you train a lot for it?
