We'll be posting a training schedule weekly targeted at running a half-marathon in early October.  

The first five weeks will be a slow build to the start of the training program, designed to get you used to running multiple days. The actual program starts the week of July 17, culminating in a half-marathon the weekend of October 7/8. The training plan involves two mid-distance runs, a shorter run and a long run each week, with speed and interval work built in. 

The schedule for each week will be posted weekly on Sunday. Talk to Jess Wold or Nash if you have any questions. 

Happy running!
