This morning I finally wrapped up my training for my first ever half marathon. After seeing that the Cincinnati Half Marathon would take place just a month after the Hudepohl 14K, I decided that now would be as good a time as any to try running a farther distances. The 14K was previously my longest run, just under 9 miles, so it would be about another 4 miles of running to finish a half marathon. In my training I peaked with long runs of 10, 11, and 12 miles on back to back to back Saturdays, so I should be well prepared for the race on Saturday. If anyone would like to see me in action, the race starts just after 8am from the intersection of Pete Rose Way and Eggleston Ave. The course winds through downtown for 5 miles before jutting out Riverside Dr. to Delta Ave. and back.
