T-minus one day to my first half-marathon! When I was preparing for the 10-mile Mid-Winter Classic, I had more of a strategy/training plan. I also had only started running 4 months before the race and running “long” was pretty new to me then, so I wanted to be strong and I wanted to be careful. […]
