    HM is in 2 weeks...the organizers changed the course and the new course doesn't have the killer hill the original one did. No complaints.

    Should be able to run the distance no problem, have run at/over HM distance in training 4 times. Getting my run time faster than a jog...not so sure about that.

    Do think I'll stick to 10K or 10 mile races after this though. Need to get some more time on strength training.

    Good luck in your half, and more importantly have fun.

    I am a fan of 10 milers. It's a nice combo of speed and endurance. It's probably a bit out of the way for you but there is a beautiful race put on by the Mohonk Preserve in the fall. http://www.mohonkpreserve.org/pptp

    I personally find hill repeats great strength training. They have an added bonus of make the bumps seem much easier in the winter.
