I did it!
13c Sep 2004(By the Clemster)16 miles, in the proverbial BAG. I was completely wiped out for the rest of the day, but this morning I had recovered enough to sprint for the bus. I still walk a bit of every mile. No way I could get through it otherwise. I guess I'll register this week.
I think running an hour is great - there's still a whole month to go, plenty of time to build up to 12 miles or so. The times I did 1/2 marathons, I didn't taper off before the race, I just worked up to 12 miles the week before and then did the 13.1 on race day. Keep at it, Jacq.
Also, if you run the second half of the course with me, we'll be going very slowly. :)
