I am so thankful for this group - you guys have been supportive and always there for my questions.
A bit of background - I have been running consistently since June 21st and have run several 5K's.
I am currently running 3-4 miles 3-4 times per week. (still doing a run:walk program usualy 4:2 at this time) and have been injury free for quite a long time.
I am doing the Turkey Trot 5 miles in one more week!
I am looking (ok fantasizing) about running the half marathon in Miami with my cousin. The race is January 30th -- and if I do the race I will also get a trip to South Beach and a couple days in Disney which is a huge motivation for me.
I am looking to make a time... I am just looking to survive it! I know it wont be easy ... but anyways....
Does anyone have a recommendation on a half marathon training program that they have used --- that they like -- that worked?
Thanks so much!

On the 7th I ran the NYC marathon and this was my first marathon. I used the training program on marathonrookie.com. I found the program worked for me and the site had a lot of useful information. I will be using their 1/2 marathon training program to run a 1/2 marathon in the spring. Good luck - you can do it !!!!
