Training Plan for Half-Marathon

Training for a Half Marathon

Well, week #1 of my training for the Holly Springs Half-Marathon is in the books.  I am amazed at how not fun running is when you haven’t done it for four years.  It’s humbling to say the least.  Not to mention, this is not Florida and I’ve always run on completely flat courses.  Even the little…
