So, about this plan stuff... My commitment to run the Grand Slam at the Runner's World Festival and Half Marathon in October is fast approaching. What's the Grand Slam you ask? It's 26.2 miles worth of running in just 3 days! I'll be running a trail run, a 5k race, a 10k race, and a half marathon in one wild weekend. I'm still not sure how to get ready for that much action.

Marathon Training Week 13 – Head Games (Fighting Doubt and Fear)

Marathon Training Plan Adjustments Mid-Training, Yay or Nay?
This is kind of a spontaneous post asking for the opinion of other runners out there. I started a 16 week training plan based on an article in Runner's World about the "Run less, run faster" training plan, aka FIRST. The article had a generic marathon training plan that was solely based on a 10k …
