MARIO FRAIOLI DOES A WONDERFUL JOB EXPLAINING why training for and racing in a half marathon is an increasingly popular way to reach a significant running goal. He doesn't mention ANOTHER BENEFIT: you can schedule a 5K and/or a 10K within that training time, running them not so much for a best time but to motivate yourself. In the summer months these shorter distance RACES are easy to find. If you have difficulty, use an EarnedRuns bib.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. In 1978 I began participating in 10K road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health and longevity.
