In about a week, I will start training for the St. Jude Half Marathon. Since I have never ran a half before, I am 1)very, very, VERY nervous, and 2) researching like crazy the best way to do this thing. I know so many runners who end up getting hurt, having knee surgery, and do serious damage to their body because they pushed themselves too hard. My goal is not speed, but endurance. I want to finish this thing with a healthy body. Check out the following link for some long distance running advice.
