Ready, Set, TRAIN!

I am reluctant to advertise my ambitions to run a 1/2 Marathon, but I figured the more support and reminders I had the more likely I am to succeed at this lofty goal of mine. The American River Parkway Race is on May 3rd. If anyone is interested in training, the more the merrier. Today was Day 1 of training and I am feeling good and extremely nervous because I have never ran this far before....wish me luck (I'm going to need it!).
For those of you who have training and race experience, tips are welcome.

I with you lady! I ran my 3 miles today and plan to stick to the training schedule. Maybe I should start with a 10k or something, 1/2 marathon is a big jump for me but I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the push, I needed that!

You will do awesome! If I didn't hate running so much, I'd do it with you!

Good luck to you my dear. I would love to train, but I am way far behind on my training, and I think I am due that day. That makes it a little bit harder.

You will do great! You have been running for a long time, that it will be easy for you. I never ran and trained and ran a half. I am training the triple crown, which is a 5K, 10K, and then a 10 miler. There is a mini a month later, but costs $50 so I am not doing that. But i would love to run with you once we move back (whenever that will be.)My advice to you is run further than 8 miles before you do the mini. I was dead at 10 miles, but did it. And you are in better shape then me, so I think that you will do great! Good Luck!!!

My advice to you would be...don't trip. You're an inspiration to us all.

Rose: You were the motivation that I needed and I'll take you up on running with the kiddos when the weather improves.
