Today we’re talking to Holly Zimmerman the author of Ultra Marathon Mom. She ran 160 miles across the Sahara Desert!! And she’s running the Mount Everest Marathon this week!!
The first Half Marathon training group is doing amazing! I’m super proud of them!!
And a lot of you have been asking when the next group is starting and for a training plan that will help you lose weight, PR, run a sub-2 hour half marathon and more. So I’ve been working on a half marathon guide that covers all the bases! But it’s A LOT of information!
So I put together this Half Marathon Survey to see what you need to run your best half. Full disclosure – I don’t know how I’m going to launch this Half Marathon Training Plan but I’m hoping it will be available in June.
