The first and only half marathon I ever ran was the OUC Half Marathon on December 6th, 2008. My time for the 13.1 mile run was 2:07:05. I maintained a pace of 9:42 and placed 86th in the female 25-29 age group.
My new (and possibly unrealistic goal) is to break the 2 hour mark and finish 8 minutes faster. The race that I am looking forward to running in is the Beachside Half Marathon in Vero Beach on October 16th. At only $55 per entry, this race is quite the discounted bargain among other races I've researched.

After looking at various training plans, I think I'm going to stick to running around 2 miles twice a week, 4-5 miles once a week, and then a longer weekend run (starting at 6 miles). By increasing the long run by a mile every week I should be ready for the half marathon by October.
I'm relieved the p90x program is almost over and that I can dedicate my work outs to runs and yoga. I'll probably try to incorporate some strength training since I've been doing so much of it during the past 10-11 weeks.
