My son wants me to start training to do a half marathon. I told him for me to run, someone has to be chasing me.
I did a half marathon 2 years ago, when I was a mear 55 years old. I found Gallager's book on marathon running very helpful. It helped me set up a program to train for it. I beat my goal of 2hr 20 min by 24 sec. It was a great experience. I now am eyeing a marathon but I think the goal will be arrive before sunset and still kicking.
