  1. Hi R.G.’s! It’s Julie from Wichita, KS. I wish I could’ve called in on your listener’s interviews show….I started running this Feb. I ran my first half here in April. Rained almost the entire time, but had a lot of fun. Finished in 2:06. Then I ran my 2nd half in Sept… My husb & I left our 4 kids with my sister and flew to New England for the wkend where we ran the Smuttynose (too)!! We celebrated our anni at that race: 13 miles for 13 years. Sorry, Sue, I couldn’t stay to meet up w/u. Immediately after my 2nd very wet half, we drive back to Boston to catch our flight home. My time was also, disappointingly, 2:06. (side cramp that caused me to run and the fact we had been walking around Boston the previous day prob had something to do w/the fact I didn’t do as well as I wanted). Two wks after that, on Oct 13, I ran my 1st full here. I fell in luv w/the marathon so I signed up for another marathon that was 6 days later in Kansas City (oct 20) my times were 4:40 and 4:36 respectively. Now I’m trng for a trail ultra in April ’13. Love the podcast. Keep ’em coming!!

    • Let me get this right…you started running in February, ran your first half marathon two months later, and finished in a little over two hours? That’s amazing! And then you ran another half, and two full marathons, all in less than a year of running? Unbelievable!

      No worries on not meeting up at the Smuttynose Half…I was a mess that day! Maybe I’ll see you at next year’s? Good luck on your first ultra!

      • Thanks, Sue! I think speed and distance is so relative. I don’t think I’m fast and still have lots of room for improvement. I really didnt do anything special to train for the halves and fulls. My training consisted of a free downloaded plan off the internet. However, my training plan was derailed when I came down with a terrible virus over the summer. (My dr said it was encephalitis but the neurologist believed it was viral meningitis.) I was bedridden and couldn’t run for a few weeks. Thank God that was in August and I got over it just in time for the fall half and full’s. I agree with that comment about the best plan is the one u stick to. I have no doubt that u girls will see the fruits of all your hard work in 2013. Have a blessed holiday season and I look forward to hearing about all of your running adventures in the new year! Ps… Also, i started running barefeet, too so i will let u know how that goes- i’m up to a 10k on rough asphalt!! and i’ll keep u posted on how my ultra goes in April.
