Newbie half marathon and marathon training plans

I remember signing up for my first half marathon in college. I thought I had officially lost my mind. The most I had ever run was 7ish miles and running 6 more just seemed insane.

Mile 13 Murray Half PM

But I signed up in December for an April race.
After that I was hooked.
Now, my plan is to eventually run a marathon. You know…”one of these days…”

But even with no race plans for the immediate future, I have been trying to keep in somewhat distance shape. (ha. always a work in progress) Thankfully I have a treadmill at home and I can bust out 3-4 miles runs through the week and I always try to do a long run on Saturdays.

Maybe some of you all are getting ready to commit to a distance race like a half or full marathon. I’ve linked some of my favorite distance race resources below. Enjoy!
