Detroit Free Press Half-marathon. 10/17/10. Training plan starts on Monday, but I've been working on my 5K pace the past couple months, so I've been on one training plan or another for a while. (I use the Runner's World SmartCoach:,7148,s6-238-277-278-0-0-0-0-0,00.html Haven't done a half marathon since 2006. Hoping for 10 mins per mile, but not optimistic. Right now my 5K pace is around 9:30 or 9:40. Good luck to everyone...stay injury-free!

I am training for my first full marathon this fall. It's an inaugural event in St. Charles, IL (Chicago suburb) called the Fox Valley Marathon. 9/19/10
I'm using a combination of the coolrunning and hal higdon's beginner's progam.
Excited and nervous, last half marathon I ran was 2 years ago.

I am training for my first half marathon in november. The Rock N Roll one in San Antonio TX. I have been training on the 5K plan on the iphone for about 5 weeks now, and I am doing good so far. I am a litte nervous to run the half marathon, but thats my goal. I would like just to finish it at this point.
