fortunately, i found the solution for the off-season many years ago...how ever many beers you drink during the season, just double it... :Cheers

I agree. I watched the Road to Superbowl 43 earlier this week because I'm sick of the Peyton Manning lovefest....... The only thing that helps is I just started training to do a mini marathon in May, so running 5 days a week has taken up a lot of my time.

I know a full marathon is 26 miles (I've gone to cheer on my friends many times at the Honolulu Marathon), but how many miles do you run in a mini-marathon?

It's 1/2 a regular marathon, so 13.1 miles.

Ran my 1st 1/2 marathon last Sept. Good luck!

Thanks, 13.1 miles sounds like a lot more reasonable of a running distance to an ex-soccer player like me (interval running is a soccer player's most effective training method, although long-distance running does build a good cardio-vascular base).

You'd think that they'd just call it a "half marathon" then. Calling it a "mini marathon" sounds like the race itself is the same length, but you have to be under 5' tall to qualify.

Half marathon would make more sense. Maybe it's just the idiots here in Indiana, lol!!!

I ran/walked one last year. the goal this year it to run the whole thing. Maybe I should say 'jog' the whole thing since my pace sucks at the moment.....

maybe he means he'll be the first to cross the finish line the day AFTER it's over?
or are you one of those guys that drive it on the scooter with the gatorade?

^^ I did my one and only 2 years ago. My back seized up at mile 17, and I was like the Hunchback of Notre Dame crossing the finish line. I had a temp of 104.9 in the med tent, probably (I'm guessing) because my mechanics for the last 8 miles or so were so inefficient, generated more heat than power.

After that I decided to stop all exercise, and just drink heavily! :Cheers

haha, see that is what im scared of, i have run 15 miles in my training so far, and with that I have not been hurt at all, I am working my way to 26.2, but I hope i dont hit a wall or have any problems because running 8 miles in pain would be horrible, way to hang it tought though.....3 months away.
