So I have decided to run a half marathon in the beginning of September and then the biggie, the Houston marathon on January 30th 2011. I have a whole bunch of 5ks in between. I am excied, my best friend lives in texas, it will be great to see hima nd his wife. I have been running for a few years now and I finally feel like I am ready for longer races. I have a training plan from runnersworld and I am of course going to keep up with my weight training.

Ran the whole thing in my Vibrams, and my (Shameless promotion) Herbivore shirt design.(seen below)

I used to. I don't ride anymore. I've raced road, mtb, cross and track. And alleycats, if that counts. I got outta that game though. I kept reinjuring my knee and got sick of it.

 

I might be back someday though. We'll see. I wouldn't be surprised. 5 years in one sport does that to ya.

Unfortunately, I did not print the shorts. And as of today $1.00CAD = $0.944USD.

 

Congrats on the half marathon!

 

Thanks.

Hope your training is on track Katheryne, and you've upped your mileage ready for the race. That's all I'd really recommend - doing a few 10/11 and 14/15 mile runs so your used to the distance, with some of the longer runs close to race pace.

 

Done three half's this year:

 

1.17.43 (4th place) - awful weather, probably lost 30-60 secs as a result

1.16.01 - (6th place)

1.17.03 - (4th place) - hilly course, with one killer hill

 

Want to do a few more before end of year as want to break 1.16 and 1.15 - should be able to to no probs on right course in decent conditions.
