Preparing for a Long Fall Run

Summer is a great time to run. The beautiful weather provides us with opportunities for many joyful outings, from morning to evening. But it also gives us the chance to ramp up our training and set a possible goal of racing a half marathon in the fall.

Half marathons – 13.1 miles – are challenging but fun, especially when you are prepared for them. If you ever want to do a full marathon, it is a good idea first to train for a half marathon to test your fitness level and stamina.
