What to do, what to do?...A friend hit me up about running a half marathon December 15th; I'm totally in! Then, I got to thinking my goal for this year was to run a full marathon, and I have yet to accomplish this. So, do I want to go for it and run the full instead of the half since this will be the last opportunity for a marathon this year? Of course I do, but my longest run to date is 20 miles (October 11), and my last 'long run' after that was a 15k (October 19); my daily miles have been between 4-8 with no long weekend runs lately...I guess I am afraid I will hit a wall around mile 20 and crash and burn and not finish the race...decisions, decisions!

Hi Karen,I signed up for the half marathon trail. Last week I was having some major back pain (I had twisted it picking up my three year old) so I didn't want to over do it. I'm excited about the half, this will be my first half marathon race!

Amanda, what have you decided to do?

Thanks, Karen. The past couple of days I have been telling myself I can do twice as much as I think I can!

I read Pam Reed's book this past summer. I get quotes wrong all the time, but she said something like "we can do twice as much as we think we can."
