I ran the half marathon last year and I did pretty good as a guy who just barely started long-distance running (2 and a half years). Plus, I had three month training with Spartans Running Club which helped out a lot.
My time was 1:37:25. The 13.1 mile is grueling; mentally and physically. I’ve been busy lately and haven’t had the time to train as compared to last year, but I have been running an average of 8 miles everyday for the past 3 and a half weeks. I feel comfortable that I can finish strong, but I don’t know if I will be able to beat last year’s time. With my new shoes and some weight trainning I’ve been doing the past couple of weeks I can probably squeeze out a decent time.
