    I just signed up to run the Vancouver marathon in May. Going to start training Sunday with 8 miles. I haven't ran a mile since I last finished a race in 2010. This is going to be fun...

    Congratulations and good luck! Train wisely and race smart to avoid a death march in the last few miles.

    I have a half marathon tomorrow. I hope to be able to use my time to help me calculate appropriate training paces for my marathon in June.

    I'll be there too...just for the 1/2 though. No ability and no patience to train for the full. :fu:

    13.14 (according to garmin) in 1:40:05. I was shooting for a sub 1:40 but this unexpected 1/4 of a mile hill at mile 12 got me off pace. Not a pr, but still my second fastest half ever.

    Have you joined any running clinics or are you training on your own?

    Just on my lonesome. I considered the Running Room clinics, but couldn't work around some conflicts. I can do the distance right now just through slow, painful brute force, but definitely need to work on a number of things before May.

    Right on. I joined a running room clinic just because I know I won't train otherwise. The running room sunday morning runs are open to anyone who wants to join so you've still got that option if you want to train with a group once and a while. You'll be paired up with people who are also running the half.

    6 miles this morning. I was forced to take a two-day rest because of a strenuous workout Thursday night that left me painfully sore, too sore to run. I felt better today, and ran well.

    haven't been running much lately but made it out for 4.5 miles today. I've never really run longer than 5 miles...that seems to be my limit lately. Need to find a way to break through as I'd like to get up to a regular 6-8 mile run.
