Suggested Training Start Dates
Did you pick a half or full marathon to run for the first half of 2018 yet? See the list of races on the previous post below!
Here are my suggested training start dates for half and full marathons in late Winter and Spring of 2018. The actual date that you should start depends on your running fitness level and experience. 10 Mile races should follow the half marathon start dates.
Contact me to discuss my personal advice for your training or to schedule a meeting to help you make a decision.
