2 halfs in a week????

by - Monday, April 07, 2008

I need your opinion....can I run two half marathons a week apart?

I mean I think I can, but is it a bad idea? Does it make me a crazy nutter?

I'm registered for the LV Half on April 27. The Frederick Half is May 4.

The reason I want to do the Frederick Half is because if you run both Frederick and Baltimore you get a funky third medal for the Maryland challenge or something like that. And I already had plans to run Baltimore in the fall.

So what do you think? Am I a nutter or is it totally do able?

  4. I think you can but just don't push on both. Pick which one will be your A race and let the other be for fun.

    as long as you are careful, and you don't try to race them both, you should be fine.

    however, the half is sold out, so i hope you already registered. but i think you can fax them or something?

    you could use lehigh valley at a "tune up" race, and frederick as a "real" race.

    good luck and be careful!

  14. Found you through Runners Lounge. It should be no problem with a week in between, now if they were on the same weekend...
