Hi Everyone! My name is Leona and I am 33yrs old. I am very active at work, and have been running for 3 years. I started with a walk/run program which resulted in my 1st 5km race. Since then, I have completed a few 10km races, and recently took place in a 140km relay with 9 teammates. I am considering training for my 1st 1/2 marathon : )

I am in the best shape of my life and will not look back......happy running!!

Hi Leona! Great to have you here.

Half marathon is a great idea - go for it! Let us know if you need any help or tips.

Hi Robert.... Just wanted to share that I ran my first 1/2 Marathon on Canada Day!! My goal was to finish in 2h 15mins, but i am pleased to say that I finished in 1h, 57m, 58s. I ran this race with my training partner and some friends who were also running their 1st 1/2. It felt so incredible to cross that finish line!

I'm looking forward to more races in the future!

Bonus? I came home to a bouquet of flowers and champagne : )

Happy running!!

That's great, Leona!

How you completely destroyed your time estimate, way to go.

One of these years I think I am going to attempt and ultra, just for "fun".
