Hi there. I just wanted to let you know about another site I visit, a women's running site, www.traxee.com. I know a couple of women are training for a half right now and posting about it...on top of all of the other great stuff. Its free. You get expert advice geared toward active women. Its personable...listen to me..I just visit it, but hey I really like and benefit from it and I thought with your question that nobody has answered yet, you may be interested.
I am a runner, ran track in highschool. I plan on training for a Spring marathon, but I haven't picked which one!
